Concert weekend sees no major incidents
At least one weekend a year, the population of Somerset swells to roughly 20 times its normal amount of 2,300.
According to Larry Barr, producer at the Float-Rite concert site, there were about 40,000-45,000 people attending Country Splash over the weekend of June 17-19.
"It's been pretty equal to what we had last year," Barr said. "The numbers mainly fluctuated in what artists performed."
