SAN MARCOS--It's a little louder in San Marcos tonight, and it's going to stay that way until Sunday.
Float Fest is this weekend, where hundreds will float the rivers that's lined with all kinds of bands.
A lot of people told News4 they've been looking forward to this day for quite awhile.
However, some who live nearby said these concerts don't always bring music to their ears.
Tubers made a splash, and bands were jamming out in the background Friday afternoon in San Marcos.
"Lots of music lovers, all very rowdy, all excited to listen to some music," said a concert goer.
"It's just vibe, it's just really cool. I mean the river, it's just part of like the school. It's just an awesome place to be," said Sophie Sanchez.
This year, the San Marcos City Council wanted to make Float Fest an awesome place for everyone, including those who live nearby.
"Treat the river with respect," said Lee Williams, a neighbor who lives nearby. "Treat the neighbors who are on the river with respect, and we can all get together. It just takes work from everybody."
Williams said she's all for having a good time and listening to good music this weekend-just as long as everyone is singing the same tune.
"That's what the river is all about," she said.
"I'm genuinely excited to listen to music," said another concert goer.
According to organizers, they are working with the city of San Marcos to keep the river clean. Volunteers will go up and down the river and pick up water bottles, while divers will inspect the bottom of it to make sure the area is clear.
No noise is allowed after 11 p.m. when Float Fest is over.
If you live nearby and have a noise complaint, call the Hays County Sheriff's Office.
