LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Perfect weather brought droves of people to West Louisville Saturday for Summerfest.

Hundreds of people came out to Chickasaw Park on the Ohio River for Summerfest 2012, a family-friendly day of events hosted from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday. 

WLOU radio provided the music, and the Chickasaw neighborhood welcomed others in for free health screenings, a rib cook-off, and a classic car show.  One person will even win a car. 

"The neighborhood has been very good to us," said John Hibbard of Approved Auto of America.  "That's one of the reasons we're giving away a car.  We really want to be part of the neighborhood, be part of this area, and contribute and give some things back, not just be here to make money."

The theme for Summerfest 2012 was "Back to our Roots."
