Despite some bad weather, the 2009 Heritage Festival had a good crowd. Other than the music, one of the highlights of the Festival was the BBQ cook-off and the crowd getting in the mood for line dancing in the afternoon. Throughout the day, tickets were pulled for prizes. At noon, dancers from Katy Kress Dance Revolution performed routines for the crowd. One of the dancers was Vinton native Holly Beth Nichols. Chris Flowers and Louisiana Express closed the Festival.
