The WhistleStop Bar-B-Que Weekend starts today.

Tonight's headliner is the Spin Doctors, and tomorrow the headliner is Survivor. Survivor is most famous for their hit "Eye of the Tiger".

Single day passes into the festival are $25 dollars for adults and $5 for kids. A weekend pass is $35.

Festival organizers recommend parking on the street or in nearby parking garages.

Beth Goodwin, the director of marketing and communications, told WAAY 31 she hopes after weeks and months of preparation the community enjoys the event.

"We provide the entertainment and we provide the kids activities. We even provide some sampling opportunities for people, but basically its a bunch of people getting together and having a backyard cookout," Goodwin said.

Festivities start tonight at 4:00 p.m. and run through late Saturday night.

Tickets are still available for purchase on the festival's website.
