My World Tuesday #43 - StrutzFest
We spent this past weekend camping in Darrington, WA at Strutzfest. This was a benefit music festival featuring 17 bands and proceeds were donated to Children's Hospital in Seattle as well as other local charities.
The festival was held on the grounds of the Whitehorse Mountain Amphitheater. This is an awesome venue.
The weather was HOT and so were the bands! We had a great time jamming to classic rock tunes over two days. The music was wide and varied, starting with songs from the 60's to newer tunes.
The festival kicked off Friday afternoon around 3 p.m. with 2 parachutists. Then it was time to rock 'n roll! If someone wasn't performing on the main stage, then a band was kicking it in the beer garden. It was a non-stop party!
Like I said, it was hot over the weekend and this young man found a way to keep cool.
This guy was entertaining us all weekend. He pulled a wagon around with a bubble machine and squirt wand spraying the crowd, whether they asked for it or not. Methinks he was under the influence of something most of the time, but he was fun to watch.
There were lots of things to do for the kids, from playing under the misters to making giant bubbles.
This is our group camp. We had 4 RV's, 1 tent and a van for a total of 13 people. We had so much food between us, nobody went hungry!
