virgin festival

Last weekend, Roger got us free one-day tickets for Virgin Festival at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby. Even though we had plans that night, we thought we'd head there in the afternoon to just check out some of the acts and have a picnic (I think that's the first concert I have been to where we were allowed to bring our own food and water!). Managed to see a few bands, including K-OS, then had to leave since we were already meeting up with my sister who was visiting from out of town. Turns out shortly after we left, it was the first thundershower of the summer... it began to dump rain and the final act had to be cancelled. Hmm... so I guess everything worked out for a reason.

I think that more outdoor events like that should allow attendees to bring their own refreshments. I'm glad everything worked out so well! Did you enjoy your visit with your sister?

We haven't been on a picnic in years! So jealous. Good thing you got the hell out of there before the rain. Nothing worse than a rainy music fest with drunk people slinging mud everywhere! hahaha.

Glad to hear that fate was with you. Sometimes Mother Nature isn't all that sweet to us, she does have a wicked little sense of humor. But then maybe it's deserved considering all that mankind has done to her...pollution of her streams, lakes, oceans, trashing her forests, pillaging her land for precious metals and stones, and how many landfills must we have created in the past couple of hundred years ? Yeah I guess the old gal has every right to whack us a good one every now and then. :D

That looks like fun. How great are free tickets. Lucky girl in more ways than one. Good thing you didn't get caught in the storm and I am so glad it didn't turn out like the Camrose music festival in Alberta that my mom was telling me about. xo

Don't you just love being able to bring your own drinks/food to a show? I <3 the Hollywood Bowl for this reason, too!

LOL, I was thinking it was Virgin convention or something, Valerie. Glad you had fun.

Valerie, our Treasure Hunt is on again...if you find some time. :)
