Tens of thousands of people turned out.
MESQUITE Headliner and Texas country singer Pat Green brought in a big crowd to the Real. Texas. Festival. in Mesquite on Saturday. Green told the crowd Saturday night that more than 35,000 people had come to the festival. Jolie Holliday and Maren Morris, both from North Texas, also performed Saturday, plus about a dozen other musicians.
A family event, the Real. Texas. Festival. includes rides, fair food, contests, and, of course, the rodeo.
Festival organizers report that 30,000 people visited the event over two days. The attendance on Friday was 11,500, the biggest first-day crowd in the festival's six-year history.
