ROMP organizers already call this year's festival a success


Organizers are already calling this year's ROMP Festival in Owensboro a foot-stomping success.

The official attendance numbers won't be available until next week, but organizers say Wednesday night was one of the biggest in ROMP's history.  

The four-day music festival is the largest annual fundraiser for the International Bluegrass Museum. Organizers say they're one step closer to a Bluegrass Center.

"My favorite part about ROMP is getting the opportunity to get together with thousands of who are becoming my closest friends. Every year I see more and more people that I've seen the year before," says Chris Langdon with the ROMP Team.

Romp 2013 will wrap up Saturday night.
