Organized in memory of Pete Jones and to raise money for mental health awareness and suicide prevention, the first annual PeteFest at Jones Fields outside Louisville was a smashing success. Driving up to the festival it was hard to fathom how close it was to the bustling downtown of Louisville, with meandering roads hugged by bustling tree lines leading to the festival grounds, offering the perfect escape for a weekend of music and philanthropy.
See who Petefest added to its lineup on Friday for its inaugural celebration September 8-10.
