Musikfest 2014.

Annually, Musikfest is held in our town for one week.

Musicians (big names, small names, no names) arrive and perform their hearts out.
It is a pretty big deal because people from all over attend and during that week traffic is horrible.
I was stuck in traffic for 45 minutes all that week. Fun, fun. Okay, not really..

But Musikfest was!

We went last Friday night and Saturday evening.
Friday night, I did not take any pictures because I forgot to take my camera. And these pictures are not too good because I was walking and snapping which is not ideal, so I apologize if some of these photos are not in focus.

{Watching a performance - It was neat because everywhere you turned there is/was a band performing for free!}

I think I should let you know that I also fell in love. With corn..
I'm telling you it was the best corn I've ever tasted in my life.

Although we went to Musikfest on Friday I purposely went again on Saturday because I really, really wanted this corn!

The corn is basically brushed with some butter, then sprinkled with paprika and parmesan cheese.
You can add extra paprika and parmesan cheese if you want.
Best believe I did. I'm serious, so, so good. Too bad that I have to wait a whole year to taste that deliciousness again!

Also, this makes me laugh because usually I would go for the funnel cake and cotton candy but this time it was for corn.
Odd.

They were awesome, wish I could remember their band's name.
They had us all dancing which is very hard not to do when you hear some sweet reggae.

After all the walking about and enjoying music we took a break for dinner.
I had an amazing lobster ravioli that I want to eat right now.

And then it was back to enjoy some more bands until dark.
This is the first time in forever that I REALLY don't want summer to end.

I wish I was there! I love stuff like this, and I would have bought so many dreamcatchers from that booth, and corn! I wish it wasnt so hot here, or else I would totally do indulging in outdoorsy type stuff like this! And that food made my mouth water...

Looks like an amazing time. I had some corn made like that not too long ago and it was BEYOND delicious!!!

You are not alone in not wanting summer to end. I'm so dreading seeing winter come.
