Downpour At The ROMP Music Festival

ROMP brings thousands of people to Owensboro, Kentucky. This year it brought plenty of rain along with it.

The weather didn't ruin the fun. Several people came up with ways to stay entertained while the music was on hold.

The sound of music usually fills the air at ROMP music festival in Owensboro, Kentucky.

Today the sound of rain drops on tents takes over.

"Playing frisbee in the rain!" While the music was stalled, the fun was not.

Volunteer Chris Tate says playing in the rain is the best way to wait. "We saw them out here playing and I was like, we are going to go play frisbee with them. So here we are," says Tate.

Rain showers left a dark cloud over Yellow Creek Park for hours, leaving empty lawn chairs as far as the eye could see. "They just kind of disappeared. As we got here, that's when the rain started. We were coming in, and they are going out, and we were like it's raining," says Tate.

The stage had to be shut down due to lightening, and many people headed for the hills while the music was on hold. "It's still fun. It is what you make it, you know what I mean. I'm still here to have fun and that's what matters."

Don't let all of the empty chairs fool you. A lot of people decided to take shelter from the rain, but not everyone had a dry wait. "Just having a good time in the rain."

Bobby Clark says he and his family traveled from Louisville to see tonight's show. "She got up and headed for the RV, and took the dog with her," says Clark.

While his family had a dry wait out of the rain, Clark says he doesn't mind being a little soggy. "I was just too stubborn to get up, and then I was just too lazy to go to the RV."

Day passes for tomorrow are $55 per person.
