A crowd of about 1,400 came to be entertained by Green and his band, as well as Ricky Carden, Blake Flood and Joey Irby.
“I think it went very well for a first-time event,” said Green. “We were all very surprised at how many came out. We weren’t ready for that many people. This year was a learning experience. We hope to make it an annual event and we’ll make it even better next year. It was definitely a success. Everybody had a good time.”
Marty Boyles of Jacksonville Auto Sales said he would be interested in seeing it become an annual event and he would sponsor it again.
“The turnout was excellent,” said Boyles. “Everything went real well. The response from the community was wonderful.”
Sponsors were Mark Almaroad Construction, Jacksonville Home Center, Jacksonville Auto Sales, Jacksonville Book Store, Loco Mex, Modern Woodmen, Fortenberry Recycling, and Elegant Tan.
Entertainment began at 6 p.m. and ended at 11 p.m.
