ROMP Fest see's biggest attendance numbers


Saturday was the final day of Owensboro's ROMP Festival that featured live bluegrass music and food vendors.

There was a lot of hustle and bustle at Owensboro's Yellow Creek Park on Saturday, which is where the ROMP Festival was held. Although the event went on for four days, it was still packed.

Mike Simpson, the Co-Director of the festival, says that it's a family affair that's growing in reputation. He also says that attendance is up and that it has been the festival to date.

"We are using social media more than ever," says Simpson. "A lot of people go back and tell their family and friends about the festival and each year we are bringing in more and more people. I've met people from Washington D.C., New Mexico, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio."

Quite a collection of people and with the acts that the ROMP Festival is bringing in the crowd is bound to grow in the years to come.
