The 15th annual Boogie on the Bricks brought a ton of people and a ton of good times to Court Street throughout the day and evening Saturday.
The crowd swelled in size as temperatures cooled and the day turned into the evening (although it was luckily not as hot as it has been in recent weeks during the afternoon).
In addition to great jams at two stages (the main stage on North Court Street and an acoustic stage sponsored by Holzer to the south), there were also plenty of arts and information vendors and multiple food trucks on hand.
Check out some photos of the event below. All photos by Conor Morris.

Multiple trail segments have already been created, but more land purchases are necessary to make the full trail a possibility. More information at: http://www.athensbelprerailtrail.org/.
