Fans enjoy Jamboree at annual watch party


CADIZ, Ohio -

While lots of fans are having a good time at Jamboree in the Hills, one group of friends decided to start up a Jamboree watch party eight years ago and it has become a tradition ever since.

David and Gina Ferri of Cadiz spent many years having a great time at Jamboree with a group of couples. In 2006, they started having children so they decided to start a Jamboree watch party on "Ferri Hill."

"We started this up so all of us could bring our kids up here and have fun and enjoy it with the kids. It's gotten bigger every year that we've done it, this is our eighth year," Ferri said.

The four-day celebration is full of lots of food, fun games and of course, Jamboree on live on all the TVs.

"We have a good time up here, you know everybody so it's really nice," Chuck Yoho said.

The Ferri's said they miss going to Jamboree but the watch party is a fun and laid back way to enjoy the Jamboree hype.
