Saturday was the third and final day of Coffee County's first ever BamaJam Music and Arts Festival. Thousands gathered outside Enterprise to see big names like Lynard Skynard and Hank Williams Jr.

As the stage began breaking down, Sunday morning marked the official end of BamaJam.

600 acres of land were filled with visitors, vendors, concerts and cars. Authorities say there were no motor vehicle accidents this weekend and incidents were contained.

Alabama State Trooper Sgt. J.R. Ward said, "It went well; approximately 30 DUI arrests were made over the whole detail that included our task force, zero units, as well as special units and motorists.”

Many who spent the weekend camping out woke up early Sunday morning to clean up and hit the road.

"We have about 1000 people working for us -volunteers, internal, employees and our families- one of our sponsors was the Army National Huard- and it would not have been possible without them," said Ashley Minadeo with Ronnie Gilley Entertainment.

Organizers say the entire 600 acre area of land should be cleared up by this Friday. A lot of the vendors went home Sunday and the production team is working fast to be cleared out in a day or two.

During three day event, there were more than 200 medical emergencies of which 50 people were transported to near-by hospitals.

Officials say that because there were enough medical personnel, things went smoothly.
