DANBURY, Conn. -- It may have been hot and humid Saturday, but the steamy conditions didn't stop crowds from celebrating at the Country Music and Food Truck Rally on the Green in Danbury.
Food trucks lined up, offering up choices galore: burgers, gyros, cheese fries, mozzarella sticks, wraps, salads, and even mac and cheese bowls.
They came from all over Connecticut for the special event, including Admiral Gyros, Dads Food Truck, Meat the Press LLC, Nosh Hound, and Szabo's Seafood Take Out.
There was plenty of entertainment to be had as well, with line dancing on the green and live musical performances to keep everyone going.
JK Shuffles got everyone out in their cowboy boots as they lead everyone in dancing around by the stage with some guidance and some beat of their own as well.
"I never really knew how to line dance, but I guess if they teach you, you could learn it," says Kim Morrissey. "It looks like fun."
After the line dancing, there was music from Whitewood, known for its soaring guitar harmonies, fast solos, and the occasional screaming violin.
Another performance came from Rhode Island native Tim Charron, a country rock performance artist who divides his time between Nashville and Florida.
The night was celebrated by country music fans with a heart for music and an appetite for good food.
"I had a really good time between the good food and watching of the line dancing," said Nancy Smith.
