Posted: Updated:

The 10th annual Shrinersfest is underway on the Riverfront in Downtown Evansville. 

On Friday night, the Shiners put on an all you can eat fish fry, then afterwards the band Junkyard Stereo Cowboys performed.

Shrinersfest attendee Jeff Townsend tells 14 News that it's the place to be this weekend.

"People need to come down and enjoy this. The weather is going be great, and next week- fireworks, airplanes, cold beer, and music. Life is good," Townsend says.

Saturday will bring the car and bike show, along with a poker run. Registration starts at 8 a.m.

You need to buy a button to get in. They cost $5 and you can buy them at the gate.  

The event will go into "prep" mode Sunday through Tuesday and reopen again on Wednesday.
