Saturday beer sales 3rd highest in Riverbend history

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -
Public Works was hard at work late Sunday night and early Monday morning picking up and sweeping up all the trash left behind after the opening Riverbend weekend that saw an estimated 130,000 people.

Crews spent almost 5 hours removing what looked like a sea of beer cans that covered the lawn right below the Coke stage. 

A few vendors tell Channel 3, they believe this year’s spike in adult beverage sales is probably the reason why cleanup took a little longer.

Friends of the festival, say Saturday nights musical headline act, “Widespread Panic" sold out of wrist bands and blanket seating tickets the same night beer vendors like Sheryl Campbell  who volunteered to help raise money for the non-profit "Tennessee Heartwood" noticed the alcohol sales were just as impressive.

Around $120,000 in beer were sold, making this year’s sales the 3rd highest in the festivals history. 

That number is music to the many volunteers and vendors that were helping out to raise money for a good cause.
