TREMPEALEAU, WIs. (WEAU) -- An area event is drawing people from all over the country and parts of the world.

Saturday is the 24th annual Reggae Fest at The Historic Trempealeau Hotel.

The event features reggae music, Caribbean food and arts and crafts.

“The rooms are actually booked a year in advance. People walk out of here, stop by the bar and say, ‘I want this room again for next year,’ and that happens to pretty much every guest room in the town,” said co-owner Jeorg Droll.

Reggae fest is Saturday from 2 to 11 p.m.

All ages are welcome

Tickets are $17 dollars in advance, $18 dollars online and $22 dollars at the door.
