The Blacksburg community came out in support of the Rocks the Blocks Music Festival.
The festival started in the farmer's market in Blacksburg and will continue to several venues downtown.
2 thousand people attended last year and event organizers expect that same amount this year.
"We just want to be a catalyst for music and the arts community. We want to grow Blacksburg to be a music and arts destination," Chris Piatt, Event Organizer for Rocks the Blocks party said.
