Crews clean up after BamaJam 2010

BamaJam 2010 ended on a great note.

While others headed home from the concert, clean up crews were just beginning their work day.

Some crews started working as early as 1AM.

Neither the rain, nor the heat stopped these folks from having fun while cleaning.

BamaJam 20-10 is officially over, but there's still a lot of action going on in the field.

Cleanup crews have worked around the clock to keep the grounds up to par.

"It's a monstrous job, we're here 24 hours a day. We start 4 days before and it takes 4 days after to clean it up."

And this isn't a simple task...

"We do around 70-75 tons of garbage. We're trying to recycle some of the aluminum."

Although official numbers haven't been released yet, some have their own opinions about how many people were in attendance.

"150,000."

One of the things BamaJam looks to change next year is to crack down on scalpers.

"We're going to continue to make changes, " said Ronnie Gilley.

Despite a drizzle every now and then...the staff still managed to smile.

"It's not fun cleaning in the rain, but I'm getting paid, so I'll manage."

It's still unclear if BamaJam set a new attendance record last night.

Festival officials will release the results next week.
