LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Crescent Hill celebrated Independence Day the old-fashioned way -- this time, outside in the rain.

The two-day celebration kicked off Thursday morning at 10 a.m.

The festival began with a 5-k and antique car parade.

Organizers say the rain didn't keep people from enjoying the activities, music and food.

"I tell you, this year the crowd is a little bit bigger than it was last year when it was 107 degrees out here," said volunteer George Kaelin. "So the rain's not stopping anybody, it looks like everyone wants to have fun -- it's the 4th."

More than 200 volunteers helped put everything together. Live music from regional bluegrass, rock and jazz bands started at noon.

Organizers say they'll be out there again on Friday, rain or shine. Fireworks were canceled on Thursday, but organizers plan to hold the fireworks show tomorrow at 10 p.m.
