Decatur - People come to the Decatur Celebration for a lot reasons. Food, crafts, but no matter the reason everybody who comes is guaranteed to hear a lot of music.
Whether you're into local blues bands like Killborn Alley, or something a little more mainstream like Color Me Badd, the celebration had a little bit of everything.
"Decatur Celebration has always set records, but the reason why they do is they bring in good entertainment and I remember listening to their songs," says Rusty Johnson of Mt. Zion
For local performers like Andrew Duncanson, it's a chance to reach new fans.
"It's kind of like a second home for us. We're from Champaign, and so we come over here and play for everybody. You know, kids, old people. It's a nice feeling for us to get to play for all the representation of Decatur."
With the 2012 Decatur Celebration now in the books, the beat moves on to 2013.
