A collection of regional blues bands played standards and original works throughout the day at the free event, which also brought food vendors and beer and wine sellers to serve the crowds.
Local churches also supplied fun outdoor games including open-air bowling. Bubbles were free-flowing.
Steve Krempasky, Shop Farragut/FBA executive director, said the event “was triple the crowd that we had last year,” while labeling the addition of various new vendors a “really a big hit.”
