Many people say there are lots of reasons they come to the show,"We'd like to consider ourselves "foodies", and then the music second," said Sharrin Lusco jokingly.

Rain or shine, several festival fans said they would not have missed the event. "It would have not stopped us if there were a tornado coming through. Nope, nothing because the river run is for Hardin County, it's awesome!" said Givens.
