Visitors to the Roots 'N Blues 'N BBQ festival braved stormy weather to attend the festival Saturday. James Hand, Rory Block and Booker T were among the artists who played today.

People take cover under a tree and under ponchos at the Roots 'N Blues 'N BBQ Festival on Saturday in Peace Park. Many people came prepared for the possibility of rain and brought umbrellas and rain gear. They ended up needing it around 4 p.m. when the rain finally fell.

Correction: That rain started at 3pm just like AccuWeather.com had predicted on line off their web site.

There was a tiny spit of rain during the Chump Change concert at Flat Branch and another during Heather Limes at 7th and Locust but it really started pouring at 3pm during the Jr Brown concert at Peace Park right at 3pm. This still did not deter many from enjoying the concert though.

That thing of not bringing Umbrellas sure did cause alot of concert goers to get awfully wet.
