Sunny Day

Started as a sunny day

Throughout the day, the crowd of more than 7,000 was entertained by live musicians Zeal Levin, FOREVERLAND, and The Bomb and there was plenty of room to dance!

Huge crowds

A real family event, attendees of every age covered one whole section of The Collection and the adjacent park. There was music and entertainment at both venues and many vendors along the way selling everything from t-shirts to cigars.

And yummy food

Ice cold beer was provided by Firestone – 805 and many flavors of Margaritas were poured all day long into a special souvenir glass.

Even with the large number of people, most lines moved relatively quickly which made the festival a very enjoyable experience in spite of the heat and unusual humidity!

There was plenty of beer, margaritas and food to distract from any minor inconvenience.

Rain or shine, heat or humidity, we can’t wait for next year!
