Festival of the Arts - 2013

Last year I was out of town but this year I was lucky enough to be able to visit each of the three days of Festival. There were no surprises but there were great people watching opportunities, and weird & interesting food to eat. So where to start - I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
$5.00 or your camera - $5.00 it is :-)

BB King at Meijer Gardens - 6/3/13

We arrived just before the doors opened and had a long line in front of us.
My water bottle was confiscated because it was opened - yeah I reuse them, fyi, but our chairs passed the entry test. It's a great venue but your experience depends so much on your surrounding neighbors. People next to us and behind us were great but those in front, not so much. Constant talking & chair moving...
 The opening act, Vincent Hays Project, was great, as was BB's band.
 Finally the man himself came out, still awesome, but more on talk and less on song.
Getting out of the parking lots was a nightmare, but not as
much as it was for these folks.
Looking forward to more concerts this summer!
If you haven't already bought your tickets, you're pretty much out of luck. 
50% of them are gone to member sales before you have a chance, fyi,
and fifteen minutes into member sales, at least 3 concerts were sold out.
Not sure how that happens...
