Rascal Flatts headlined the 2nd annual Bash on the Bay music festival. Roughly 10,000 people flocked to the Put-In-Bay airport to enjoy live entertainment from music’s very best. The Rascal Flatts memorized concert-goers with hit songs like “Yours If You Want It” and “What Hurts the Most”. Put-In-Bay was packed and island businesses called it a “record setting event” that allowed for people to reconnect with Ohio’s best tourist destination. At the time, Put-In-Bay had the capacity to host 7,500 people over night between its various hotel and lodging partners which meant the Miller Ferry and Jet Express had to run later into the night to accommodate the transportation of all the people form the Bash on the Bay. Right after the concert finished, it was announced that Kid Rock would be headlining the 2020 Bash on the Bay!
