After three days of rockin' country tunes, headliner Randy Houser finished off the annual music festival in Mission.

The Rockin' River Music Festival started Thursday, and featured more than 20 bands on three stages, set up at Mission Raceway Park.

Talented country stars from around the continent and right here in British Columbia kept the crowds entertained since Aug. 7, including Hey Romeo, Julian Austin, Terri Clark, The Road Hammers and Gord Bamford.

A last-minute cancellation by Saturday's planned headliner, Rascal Flatts, due to the lead singer losing his voice, brought Houser to Mission instead, a move that pleased numerous fans.
