WAXAHACHIE (CBSDFW.COM) - Thousands of people headed to Waxahachie for the 18th Annual Texas Country Reporter Festival Saturday.

Attendees had the opportunity to see many of their favorite things about the Lone Star State all in one place.

Many of them came just to see producer and host Bob Phillips.

“I love it when they can tell you something about a story that you did,” Phillips said. “Those are the people that really watched and paid attention.”

Organizers estimated more than 50,000 people attended the one-day event in Waxahachie. They surrounded the historic Ellis County courthouse to see some of the people and items featured on the syndicated Texas Country Reporter TV show.

One dedicated viewer from Burleson even hunted down pies, which were featured on a show about Amarillo.

Admission was free to the all-day event featuring more than 200 artists and craftspeople, food and live music.
