Review Of The Long Play Music Fest

Food

The food was delicious. My MVP was Screw City Tavern. They crushed it with their Loaded Mac n Cheese. There was a stand at the carnival that sold Chocolate Covered Cheesecake. I could not ask for a better dessert.

Music

Cheap Trick was the perfect Grand Finale with an amazing show, as always. There was music all day, each day. I also caught Blooze Brothers, Hairbanger's Ball, Off-Broadway, Seventh Heaven, Gin Blossoms, and Jeff Tweedy, None of them disappointed.

Everyone brought their "A" game and it was not like they had over a year off from shows.

Fireworks

A perk of the festival was fireworks each night. They put on a great show each night. I was not surprised because the Rivets have incredible fireworks after Saturday night games. For Independence Day, they took it to the next level. They were some of the best I have ever seen.

Please Come Back Next Year

For a first-year event, I was very impressed. If you did not make it, you definitely missed out on a fun time.

Organizers want to bring it back next year. I really hope they do because this was a special weekend for our community.
