59Twenty Music Fest Draws Large Crowd

By  | 

Hundreds of music fans were in downtown Meridian on Saturday for an annual tradition.

Singing Brakeman Park was packed on a nice, spring Saturday for the 59Twenty Music Festival. In addition to the musical performances on stage, there was also food and other fun activities going on. This year's concert is benefiting a local organization that helps victims of domestic violence, Care Lodge.

"We just feel like that since it's a local shelter, they don't get the funding a lot of the bigger charities may get," according to Robby Pickett with the Young Professionals of Meridian. "It was just something we really wanted to get back to this area instead of a larger national charity."

The concert ended at 11 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets were $30 at the gate.
