A tailgate party in Cannelton Sept. 20 was a hit with more than 500 people attending, its sponsors reported.
Chris and Tabitha Blake sponsored the event with community sponsorships and volunteers.
Activities included a street car and bike show, mechanical bull riding, games, food booths and vendors.
Proceeds will support bullying-prevention programs at Cannelton City Schools.
Chris Blake said future events are planned and predicted they will draw even more people.
