Stewart Park Music On The Halfshell

As we were driving through town we noticed some goings-on at Stewart Park. 

They were getting ready for a Music On The Halfshell program. In the summer time this giant umbrella like structure is unfolded, making a sort of mini amphitheater. In the winter in is folded back down. Looks like it's Big Bad Voodoo Daddy tonight.

The tradition here is earlier in the day people will lay their blankets out to reserve a spot for the show.

At show time the people come back to their saved spot and enjoy the show.

Pretty amazing in this day and age that people can still do this without worrying their blankets will be stolen. Or their reserved spot.

You can barely see it here but the halfshell actually backs up to the river. 

A beautiful setting and a fun time for all!

OMGoodness, that is actually what I was thinking when I saw the blankets/quilts!
You can tell I live in the stupid big city, that wouldn't work here, people would just
move your blanket and put one they stole from previous events down!
