After a tense start with traffic at a standstill on Thursday as it entered the first ever Lockn’ Festival in Nelson County, things are going much more smoothly Friday. “It was intense. Volunteers just walked off the job and thousands of us in cars were left to fend for ourselves. I arrived around 9AM Thursday and finally made it in around 6:30pm,” Andy Stillman told us. On Friday Andy said things were very smooth sailing and he had no problems getting back in.

Drivers in the area reported no problems on area highways in and near Lovingston either late Friday afternoon.”Just came back for the Dollar General and the Nelson Library. Traffic was not an issue at all. Seemed like a very quiet Friday. You would not even know there was a festival in town. Food Lion was not busy, the gas stations were not busy, Vito’s was completely empty as were many other local businesses for a Friday. So if you have errands, want to have a meal with the family, go to the Nelson High Football game tonight…get on out there and let us resume life I know I am,” said Tori Mininger of Shipman, VA

Musical acts have been playing on stage over the past 24 hours with more and more on stage through Sunday when the festival winds down.
