NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) — Friday's rain canceled the first night of the Tallahatchie River Fest.

More than a hundred vendors were at the festival where people came to listen to music, eat and just have a good time.

The fest had donut eating and barbecue contests, among other activities.

Special musical guests came like Skylar Laine and Josh Thompson.

One organizer says that this fest boosts the moral of the town.

"It's a wonderful festival," Union County Development Association Executive Director Phil Nanney said. "We have seen a lot of happy people. We've seen people buying things and that's good for the vendors, seen a lot of people walking around with good food and a lot of people ready to start listening to the music. So, we'll have a great afternoon."

Nanney says this year's festival had a record number of vendors.

He also says planning will begin for next year's fest in February.
