80/35 Day One

80/35 Day One

I've officially attended a musical festival, guys! Can you believe it took me this long to go to one? Sheesh. It was about time! 

I've been to concerts, but the ones I'm used to were usually at smaller venues and the stages were dimly-lit. So it was complexly different than 80/35! While I'm used to crowds of less than two hundred, almost 30,000 people attended the festival over the weekend. 

While it took some time getting used to the crowds, I felt very proud of my city throughout the weekend. We've hosted so many things over the years (so many festivals have been located on Locust Avenue!) and it was great to see everyone show up and support things.
