Hundreds from around the Midwest are swinging till the cows come home at Country Fest.
Events kicked off around twelve thirty on Saturday and run until midnight. People are geared up and ready to go.
"I'm looking forward to these bands getting a little louder and starting to party," said Billie Pahl, General Manager at Bruno's Pizza.
"We're just looking for an ND good time, a North Dakota good time," said Luke Schwagler, a student from Dickinson.
"I'm just looking forward to every dang thing," said Cowboy Joe, the Host of Country Fest.
From the beer garden, to vendor village, and lawn games, they had something for the whole family.
"I've never been to anything like this and I'm pretty happy to work it, I was excited," said Pahl.
The event included local talent, groups like Harmon Lake, and more from around the country like the Church of Cash, a Johnny Cash Tribute Band.
"This is an electric atmosphere. A lot of energy out here. This is the biggest country party North Dakota has ever seen," said Joe.
And it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Organizers hope to bring in 10,000 people by the end of the night.
