Reggae Festival sets attendance record at Water Tower Saturday

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The "Four Roses Kentucky Reggae Festival" got underway at the Water Tower Saturday. 

The three-day event celebrates Jamaican culture through music, ethnic foods, artwork, crafts, and jewelry.

More than eleven musical acts are performing and bringing in people from as far away as Oklahoma.

This is the festival's 24th year, which highlights the culture and food that accompany reggae music.

For some, the food is half the draw. "The food's been really good, the plantains were excellent," Nick Asberry said. 

Saturday's attendance of more than 10,000 broke the previous record of one-day attendance.
