Sunday was the final day of the Osceola Bluegrass Festival. The free event wrapped up around 5 p.m. at Fern Hunsburger Park.

The event has always been completely free for the community, including no cost for admission, parking or entertainment.

Visitors enjoyed food eating contests, races and other activities throughout the day.

Organizers say bluegrass is a way of life for some and a big event for Osceola.

"It’s important to the community to be honest or to Osceola,” said executive director Tom Krueger. “Osceola needs something to you know...it’s our homecoming. People make it a point to come to the Bluegrass festival from out of town, that might be out of town from Osceola."

Around 4,000 people attended on Saturday.

The festival is held every year during the third week of August.
