Popcorn Festivals USA

Man, there's a lot of popcorn festivals in the midwest. We had no idea until we played the Orville Redenbacher Festival in Valparaiso, Indiana Sept 9 of this year. 75 THOUSAND people converged in ONE DAY.

The high/lowlight of the day: The power went down citywide before we arrived; we started about 90 minutes late. Funny/not-funny: The festival was sponsored by the area's electric company. OUCH! Can't imagine they'll live that down anytime soon...
