Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Rhythm filled the air at Rec Park as bands played back to back.

Hundreds of people brought lawn chairs to lounge beneath the sun and night sky at the 18th Annual Rec Park Music Fest.

The event not only promotes what Rec Park has to offer, but it also showcases regional talent.

"Today has been going great, the weather is beautiful," said organizer Jim Reyen. "Bands are rocking out and we've got lots of different styles ranging from country to bluegrass to folk. And there's lots of people, lots of vendors, lots of children activities. Everyone is having a good time."

The bands played from 2 p.m. until about 9 p.m.
