Summer Celebration
August 30, 2008
This years' Summer Celebration was the 4th show we've done at JCC Park over the past 3 yrs, and it was the FIRST TIME that we had nice weather for the entire day. This time around we added a few more bands, and had a few more people turn out, making this the biggest outdoor show we've had yet. It was an absolutely perfect day in the park with little kids and dogs running around, bigger kids catching frogs and crayfish in the creek, and the grown folks rocking out with 8 bands, food from the grill, and fresh Harvest Ale from Southern Tier Brewing Co. Our friends from Labyrinth Press Company were also on hand, serving good coffee right when we needed it, and once again donating all of their profits from the day to the AAAlliance. Of course, [...]
