Those feeling a bit hungry headed over to the refreshment area, where there was a barbecue and festival food available.
Although there was no admission fee, festival organizers did ask for donations to the Sudbury Food Bank.
The event makes sure the food bank's shelves are full during the summer, when many people forget to donate, said Sudbury Food Bank executive director Dan Xilon in an interview prior to the event.
“It fills the coffers right away,” he said.
Not counting the donations at the most recent festival, over the years, Downtown Rotary Blues for Food has brought in 57 tonnes of food and more than $250,000.
