Overall, a real blast. Spending time with my wife, and a friend-couple of ours was a rewarding experience. We ate some good (and NOT carb friendly!) foods there, saw lots of people, including some local "news celebrities". We and our friends both agreed that we would NEVER let our daughters dress like most of the teenie girls we saw there. I swear, they looked like child prostitutes (not that I have an actual frame of reference for that.) Wearing skirts that ALMOST covered their butt cheeks, or lowrider pants with thongs, halter tops, or those flimsy "handkerchief shirts." I was embarassed for their parents.
My main reason for wanting to be there was to see the Spin Doctors, but apparantly, the whole band had been comped some extreme amounts of beer before the concert, as they sounded AWFUL, butchered their own lyrics, and kept saying "We're the Spin Doctors" after every song.
On a happier note, a group I had never heard of called Trout Fishing In America put on a fabulous show, and may just be one of my new favorite groups. They are worth a look, blog readers!
We plan to return to festival briefly on Sunday to see Eddie Money, and enter to win a big NASCAR give-a-way.
Fun fun fun!
