“I think people are ready to go out and see music and the bands are ready to play in front of the people and we were happy to bring these two together,” said festival organizer Ben Soltesz.
People came to Allegheny Commons Park in large numbers to enjoy the music, food trucks, family activities, and an artist market.
The rain didn’t deter the fans either.
“That’s only when we dip our feet in the water or in the puddle again, I think. But we’re having a great time and we’re looking forward to next year and a lot of other things we’re going to do, ”said festival chairman and co-founder Cody Walters.
