    wonder what the sweepstakes prize will be! fingers crossed we get to see laura bell bundy somewhere at this year’s fest! can’t wait!

    Laura Bell Bundy is great. We want to see Chris Young, but think he deserves to be on the big stage…we’ll see. Sadly, we won’t spend much time down at the riverfront. It is way too hard for Mom to enjoy the riverfront concert since they have opened it up to the public. She is in a wheelchair and can’t get through the crowds. Also, it’s hard to save your spot under the tent when a person in a wheelchair needs to use the facilities. It may make the vendors more money, but it is a real blow to the 4 day ticket holders.
