Thousands jam Brownsville for Willamette Country Music Festival
BROWNSVILLE, Ore. - An estimated 15,000 people will visit Brownsville this weekend for the Willamette Country Music Festival.
The 3-day festival features several award winning country artists. Music lovers camped out hours before gates to the sold-out show opened.
"About 18 hours," Mile Dodge said. He's been "playing skipo and hanging out with the nephews."
Tents and RVs fill the camp, where music fans kept busy during the day.
"Concerts, check out parties, just have a good time," said Debbie Trammel.
With thousands of people still expected to show, staff and volunteers are doing the best they can to move traffic along.
"We're just trying to help people into the right direction," said Anthony Van Landingham. "Lots of people with questions about what entrance, where to get a certain type of pass, medical tents, that kind of stuff."
Law enforcement said they plan a DUII crackdown in the area.
The concert is sold out. Expect traffic delays in the area. Many concertgoers are set to camp through Monday.
