BOONE — The streets of downtown Boone were transformed on June 17 and June 18 when thousands of people descended on the town for the Boonerang Music and Arts Festival.

Boonerang Founder and Director and Town of Boone Cultural Resources Director Mark Freed said an estimated 6,000 people attended the festival, with more than 4,000 ID checks taking place — which did not include artists, vendors, staff, children and non-drinkers.
