Reggae on the River 2014

When we arrived at Reggae on the River it was 105 degrees and sweltering. The concert bowl was dusty as we moseyed through to the other side looking for a swimming hole to dip in and cool off. Worried there wouldn’t be enough water in the Eel River, we were delighted to find plenty enough to swim in and feel refreshed.

Once the sun began to go down, the crowd started coming out of their shade hideouts to rebel in Reggae and dance the night away.

All the music was fantastic. There was never a dull moment. One of my favorite new acts of the weekend was Meta and the Cornerstones.

Thanks Reggae on the River and Sol Solutions for a great weekend!
