This is a gigantic annual event that keeps getting bigger every year. Last year, the highway patrol estimated 22,000 people came to this event. This year, it felt just as large if not larger. And yes, it always on July 3rd. We were providing our full stage, sound and lighting for the band The Spazmatics. This was a two trailer kind of event because of all the equipment required. We arrived at 10 am, and it took us until about 4 pm to complete the set up. The band came late, so we could only do a line check of every instrument and mic, but never got to do a full sound check. Dave Bender from CBS13 was the MC for the event and he is always a delight to work with. The event ran very smoothly from our end and we got home around 4 am. It would not have seemed like such a long day if the temperature wasn't 106º all day long.
