Music lovers gathered Saturday to kick off the annual Pleasantville Music Festival.

This year marks the 13th annual New York Backyard Jam.

"It's a whole day dedicated to loving and experiencing music,” said Natalie Grace Schulz, of Pleasantville. “So it's kind of cool to see everyone else's reaction, as well as the different acts.”
