MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — It’s been a hectic few days for first responders working in the area of the four-day Carolina Country Music Fest in Myrtle Beach.

But like the thousands of country music fans who showed at the oceanfront concert venue, they will take away many memories of this year’s festivities and the stars who helped make it all possible.

Here are a few of their photos.

The start of the final day of music at this year’s festival was delayed by lightning shortly after 1 p.m., but fans were allowed to reenter the festival area by about 2:30 p.m. Headliner Jason Aldean wrapped up this year’s event Sunday night.

Organizers have already started making plans for next year’s festival, which is scheduled for June 8-11.
