ALABASTER – Clear weather, musical performances from several local and nationally-renowned bands and plenty of kid-centered events drew one of the largest crowds in Alabaster CityFest history on June 6, according to event organizers.

The crowds began rolling in shortly after the event began at 9 a.m., and kept coming throughout the day, said Alabaster Arts Council President Adam Moseley. The Arts Council organizes CityFest, which is the largest festival in Shelby County, each year. “We had a great crowd all day,”

Moseley said on June 7. “It was one of the largest crowds we have ever had.” Moseley attributed much of the evening crowd numbers to the event’s headliner, 2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery. He is well-known for songs such as “The Trouble with Girls,” “See you Tonight” and “I Love you this Big,” and wowed spectators during the show by performing many of his hit songs.

Rock band Civil Twilight took the stage at 7 p.m. to open for McCreery, and performed many of its hit songs featured on shows such as “One Tree Hill,” “The Mentalist,” “Arrow” and “Pretty Little Liars.” “I think Scotty McCreery put on an incredible show and this year will be hard to top. But, we will start next week to do just that,” Moseley said.
