CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Bunbury Festival ended in the Queen City with music, increased attendance, and cooperative weather, according to Bill Donabedian, Founder of the Festival.
Tickets are already on sale for Bunbury 2014, which will be July 11-13. Ticket information is available at http://www.bunburyfestival.com/tickets
Music fans of all ages attended the Bunbury Festival, which included many families as well.
"It's a great environment. It's safe. You're not worried about taking them (children) anywhere, anybody grabbing them or anything like that. It's kind of a fun environment to be at," said Nathan Dye, who brought his kids along.
The family friendliness was not the only thing that brought festival-goers out for the weekend. After last year's inaugural festival, some just had to come back for more.
"Both weekends were great. I had a great time last year. I had a great time this weekend. I'll be back every year," said Eric Clark, who spent the whole weekend at Bunbury.
One of his friends said a noticeable improvement from last year is the lineup of bands.
"The middle-of-the-day acts are really high-caliber. So much better than they were last year. You could come just to see the middle-of-the-day acts, and be satisfied," said Andy Kaake, who also spent the weekend at Bunbury.
Donabedian assures that the festival will return next year with one goal.
"We'll be back next year. Bigger and better is just what we gotta do," said Donabedian.
