Was that the best Easter weather in 20 years? It was magic, beautiful sunny days, balmy nights, warm ocean, a surf running and most of all a GREAT Blues Fest.
Again, people gathered in Byron from all over the Planet to kick back and enjoy 4 days of music, food, and fun. The town and festival organisers were totally organised and ready for the influx of humanity. I am continually amazed at how many people can attend the festival and get along in good spirit and grace. Sure the traffic is a little, shall we say, inconvenient yet everyone is chilled (I can’t remember hearing anyone honking their horn) and relaxed about the time it takes to get from A to B.
What’s next on the program in The Bay.
