Hundreds of athletes are taking Richmond by storm this weekend for "Dominion Riverrock."

The outdoor lifestyle festival is bringing hundreds of athletes, spectators and musicians to Brown's Island.

This is the fourth year the event has been held. Venture Richmond and the Sports Backers, who organized the event, estimated a crowd total of 25,000 for the entire weekend. But they almost reached that mark the very first night.

"It's really awesome.  And it opens people's eyes to a lot things that they had no idea you could do in Richmond," says Taylor Nystrom. She competes in the pro-level bouldering event.
