Lynchburg, VA – The Lynchburg Get! Downtown festival was a huge hit. Organizers estimate the event hosted more than 8,000 people.
Families and students all came out for a night of fun, food and music.
This year, organizers followed the event with “stay downtown”; a slogan aimed at keeping all 8,000 of those people in the area.
Many downtown restaurants hosted live music Friday night to bring in more customers.
Overall organizers are very pleased; the four year old event has grown each year.
