Jazz Fest 2008

We just got home after traveling to Sioux Falls with good friends to attend Jazz Fest 2008. It feels as if we made the room reservation months ago. We didn't get to the park till after dark. I think the parking lot guy did a pretty good job taking our picture, since he was so busy. He was directing traffic with one arm, while snapping this pic with the other!



We heard the last two groups play. There were about 40,000 people there.

The next day we arrived at the park to set up our "nest" of chairs, blankets, bags, etc. We had a great view of the stage and the big screen. We were settled in, enjoying the afternoon bands, when severe thunderstorm warnings were announced. Everyone was to clear the park!












Need I say more! We went to Randy and Becky's for a couple of hours. They grilled some delicious kabobs, and before we knew it, the weather service gave the all-clear and we were back at the park.
Both the evening bands were amazing. We had alot of fun!
We did a little shopping and had a nice lunch before heading home.
