(WWBT) - Thousands of people came out to Maymont Saturday for the annual Richmond Jazz Festival.

The event doesn't just attract Richmonders to the park for the festival.. Many people come from across the country to participate in the event.  Event organizers expect around 10 thousand visitors this year.

Saturday's line-up featured acts such as Will Downing, New Edition and David Sanborn.

Some festival-goers have attended the event in previous years, but for many, this is their first time at the festival.

"I wish I had been coming before now," said Danielle Foote.
