DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - North Texas is cleaning up on Tuesday after the NCAA Final Four came to a close on Monday night. Connecticut won the title. But, while the actual games were played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, there is work to be done all over the DFW area.

Bracket Town was the festival being held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas. It included a giant NCAA sign and a concert venue. The entire thing took five days to build, but organizers have only two days to get it all broken down and removed.

Officials said that the entire weekend was a big success.

There was some rain, but it was not enough to dampen the spirits of college basketball fans, and it was nothing like the ice that blanketed North Texas when the Super Bowl was played here. There was also a problem involving thieves. Someone stole about $600 worth of fireworks from the concert venue, forcing law enforcement officials to tighten up on security.

Organizers in Dallas watched over the big events at the city’s emergency management office and at a command post in Dallas. “We had all of the specialists that were available watching the radar,” said Amanda Whitelaw with the organizing committee. “We were making sure public safety, the NCAA and our local organizing committee were paying special attention to whether or not we needed to make a judgment call on some of those events. And, luckily, they went off without a hitch.”

NCAA officials are leaving town now, but will come back in May with officials from Indianapolis. That is where the Final Four is being held next year. Everyone will sit down to analyze this weekend’s events to see what worked well and what could be changed.
