There was great weather when the gates opened Friday afternoon for the 3-day festival of music.

Festival goers said they were looking forward to a musical line up this year that includes performances from local entertainers like Trombone Shorty and national bands like Pearl Jam.

“It’s a mix of local music and national music on a national level,” said festival-goer Lucas Alessanerini.” “As you can see there’s arts, there’s rides, just a great time.”

The festival continues throughout the weekend.

A limited number of tickets and passes are available.
