There's nothing wrong with a "redneck" festival. Its just a different lifestyle that some people choose to live, and as long as it doesn't threaten others they have just as much right to live that way as you and I.

You would probably be shocked to know there was a section where you could buy beer and drink it too, and there were no drunken brawls-much to your disappointment, I'm sure.

There was no quota for nonwhite folks...boo hoo...that must really make the many people on here with whiteaphobia cry...you all whine about others not "trying something new" while you yourselves make a judgement about an event you never even bothered to attend. Sorry there were no sexual assaults like at New York's Puerto Rican parade or shootings like at the latest African American Fest. We missed out on that brand of multiculturalism, very closed minded of us.

I met a lot of fine down to earth folks there, and the proceeds went to build a new playground for the children!

Gosh darn, I'm still traumatized by all the White faces, it was so overwhelming!
Ahh...locals attempting humor,gotta love it

Were there any shootings, stabbings, or rapes at this festival?
Didn't think so.
On the other hand, where I live, there is always violence of some sort at any of the "minority" festivals; African World Fest, Juneteenth Celebration, Hispanic Fest, etc.
No such problems at German Fest, Polish Fest, Festa Italiana, or any of the white events.
Weird, isn't it? So you brainwashed liberals, please elaborate on just what it is that "scares" you about a bunch of whites gathering to have some fun at "Redneck Fest."
