|We were pretty far from the stage, but look at that skyline!|
- A drunken girl decided to do interpretive dance/ballet through the mud with a beer in hand. She fell in the mud, spilled her drink, and ran away.
- A guy stumbles over out of nowhere, crashes into the mustard and ketchup table next to the corn dog booth, gets up and stumbles away.
- A woman stumbles along in the deep mud, sees the corn dog booth and heads straight for it. She stumbles away with corn dog in hand and nearly falls twice.
- A couple argue about the guy wanting to walk through the mud and his lady friend refusing to walk through it. He went ahead to try to find the areas safest to walk. But she refused to move.
- A woman eating her corn dog drops it in the mud, shrugs and heads to the ice cream truck.
I enjoyed the music and came away with a deeper appreciation for the artists. Lesson 3: Let it go. If you didn't wear rain boots (like me), get over the fact that you have mud all over your feet and/or shoes. People who had worn flipflops had taken them off and just walked barefoot. People who wore white — you're so brave! — didn't seem to care. It was still fun!
Lesson 4: Learn more about the cause. Farm Aid is not just a concert; it has a message. It aims to help family farmers and promote changes in farm policy. I want to become more knowledgeable about how our food is produced and more mindful about what I put in my body. (Says the girl who ate funnel cake and veggie corn dogs ...)
Overall I had a great time at my first Farm Aid concert. Have you ever been to one?
