Empire Rockfest wrapped up last night in downtown Belleville.
Organizer Mark Rashotte says this was the biggest year ever for the musical event, with 12,000 people attending the concerts over the four-day festival.
Slash, George Thorogood, the Steve Miller Band and others rocked the crowds, but the biggest show was Boston on Friday night, drawing 3,600 people.
A raffle at the event raised more than $10,000 for the Three Oaks Foundation, which provides services to women and children who are victims of domestic abuse.
