Yeah it's that time of year again....Riverbend that is. And here is a picture of typical things along the streets as you enter the festival. Good grief.
This year we decided not to attend the festival. Walking in shoulder to shoulder traffic with cigarette smoking drunks was not appealing. Too bad...as there were one or two acts we might have opted to see. Totally not worth dealing with that crowd though! Instead we cruised around on the scooter and had a very nice dinner downtown.
