The annual Jamboree In The Hills four-day music festival came to a close Sunday, with officials in the medical tent reporting an average year.
"We usually treat between 200 and 300 people on-site each year and send about eight per day to the hospital, and this year was no different," said Neal Aulic of Ohio Valley Medical Center.
Aulic said wet and cool weather throughout the weekend reduced the number of heat-related medical tent visitors, but it did cause an unusual issue with several concert-goers.

"We've seen a few cases of trench foot," Aulic said describing the medical condition caused by wearing heavy socks and boots in mud and moist weather for long periods of time. He added it was a common issue with soldiers in World War I.
Aulic said the tent was kept busy with injuries related to fights or too much alcohol consumption - problems that persist no matter what the weather brings. Hot weather finally hit the area Sunday, as many attendees made their way home.
Those who remained saw performances from Michael Stanley, Blackberry Smoke, Lee Brice, David Nail and headliner Ronnie Dunn.
