Festival goers are ready to ROMP this weekend

Posted: Updated:
OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

It's time for one of Owensboro's most popular festivals that brings in people around the world.

ROMP: Bluegrass Roots and Branches Festival is taking place at Yellow Creek Park just off of Highway 144 in Daviess County.

Lots of campers actually arrived yesterday morning to get ready for the first official day of ROMP today.

The performances are scheduled to begin around 1 p.m., but changes are always possible.

Kings Highway will take the stage at the International Bluegrass Music Museum on Second Street first, followed by Goodwill.

Back at Yellow Creek Park, the performances start at 4 p.m. with the Boston Boys.

After that, you'll hear from 10 String Symphony, David Wax Museum, and others.

Headliner Merle Haggard is scheduled to perform on the main stage at 8:30 p.m.

If this is your first time at ROMP, you'll want to keep a couple of things in mind.

It's a good idea to bring chairs and blankets for the performances.

Organizers also say that you can still get tickets at the gate, so if you haven't had time to buy them yet, you're in luck.

To make sure that everyone has a good time, there are a few rules to keep in mind.

Respect your neighbor's space, especially if you're camping.

Also, pay attention to the signage that's been placed around the park.

For everyone's safety, no open campfires are allowed.
