Hundreds were at the Danville Community Market for the 13th Annual Racin' and Tastin' fundraiser.

It was all you can eat barbecue, an open bar, and entertainment by the Fantastic Shakers. The event benefits Danville's Festival in the Park, which costs between $40,000 and $50,000 to put on. This year will mark the 40th anniversary the festival. It's three days full of entertainment, food and activities."It's been going on a long time. Most festivals don't last this long and we've been lucky to have a lot of good volunteers and people in the community that's willing to help out," said L.C. Moore, President of Festival in the Park Inc.This year's festival in the park will be held May 16th through the 18th.
