BamaJam Festival Kicks Off

It is one of the biggest events to come to the Wiregrass area and thousands of people are already set up to listen to famous artists in country music for the BamaJam festival.

The three day event is on 600-acres of land outside Enterprise at the intersection of Highway 167 north and Boy Scout Road.

The Dothan Highway Patrol Post, in conjunction with the Alabama Department of Transportation, is working to ensure event traffic flows as smoothly as possible and motorists arrive safely.

With that many vehicles trying to get to the festival, needless to say traffic is backed up for miles.

State troopers say motorists should drive with extreme caution, obeying all the traffic laws and exercising patience and courtesy because of the heavy traffic.

Traffic officials say if you are planning to head to the beach this weekend, you may want to take an alternate route.

Alternative beach routes include Highway 331 south of Montgomery, Highway 231 through Dothan to Panama City, and Alabama 87 south of Troy through Elba.

There are some things attendees need to know before passing through the gates.

When on the grounds you can bring lawn-chairs or seats, umbrellas, blankets, and sunscreen; however you must leave food, beverages, and coolers behind.

Organizers say food and beverage venues will be in big supply at BamaJam and providing breakfast, lunch and dinner possibilities.

For more information including a lineup of performing artists you can log on to the BamaJam website at www.bamajammusicfestival.com
