HARRISONBURG -- A new music festival is leaving its mark here in the Shenandoah Valley.

Great music and food, that's what the first ever red wings music festival promised patrons.

"We knew natural chimneys would be a perfect place but we didn't know how the community would respond and its just been an amazing turnout of lots of families, there's lots of kids running around," said Trent Wagler, the lead singer of the Band the Steel Wheels.

He's one of the organizers who put together today's music festival.

"It's a great event, it's a local event and it really increases our exposure for our company and we are local, so we can never go wrong with a local event," said Mandi Smith, the Director of NROCKs.

She setup a display at the festival for her business.

"Not only are businesses here in the Shenandoah Valley benefiting from the 3-day long music festival, but another long-term project will also that is the Northend Green way project."

The festival will bring in money to help create a bike path in the City of Harrisonburg

"Greenway is going to provide such great ways to bike through town, to feel safe for families and individuals who currently may not feel safe on the roadways that we have," said Wagler.

Wagler says the festival will definitely be back next year.

Sunday is the last day of the festival. It will run from 1 PM to 6 PM.

Performers tomorrow include Nathan Moore, Scott Miller and the Mckenzies. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
