A sweet little show. Our lot experience started off right ( and we knew we were home) when the guy parked next to us pulled out a pet carrier and let out the baby wild swan he was caretaking since it had been abandonded by it's mother a few weeks back. I love how the variety of show attendees never ends. The lot experience was a bit more subdued than what we were used to due to the cops cracking down somewhat on the drinking and vending. Nothing draconian, but lots of petty hassles. The yellow jackets were mellow and having to go around and explain that the authorities were not going to allow vending or alcohol drinking. It was a polite thing to do; they looked embarrassed, not likeing to have to tell people they couldn't party. They told the vendors they just had to see them start to pack it up, and then they'd walk away. The cops were non-agressive in their approach; if they saw the alcohol it had to be poured out, but anyone with sense was able to drink as much as they wanted, you just had to keep an eye out. The crowd was chill, lots of nice interesting people to talk to. Lots of respect and good attitudes. After we had our fill of schmoozing, we went in. Lots of room to spread out in, large steep lawn, and a nice concourse filled with overpriced food and drink. I walk around there and forget what venue I'm at, it's so trippy, kind of like a county fair layout. A really nice wishful beginning to the show, but we were ready to have a good time, rain or no. Headed up the hill for the good dancing space. I won't review the music, that being redundant since it can be heard by those interested, except to say that for me, as usual, it was too short. But then the rain came at the end, and we knew it was time to go. A good time, filled with all the usual best a show has to offer; and the anticipation of doing it all again tomorrow.
