Some music fans will spend the entire weekend at the Georgia Throwdown.

There are camping areas at the fairgrounds for people who want to set up tents or bring in campers or recreational vehicles.

We talked to one group who arrived Friday morning and was ready for the music when it kicked off Friday afternoon. Kevin Haase said, "We're here just taking the opportunity to camp and to support what they've got going on, and of course you don't want to be on the road. We're gonna be having some alcohol and want to keep it safe."

Members of the Remaining Few and other motorcycle clubs are camping out. They're selling raffle tickets at the Throwdown for a chance to win a motorcycle.

The money will go to the Alzheimer's Association and other charities.
