On Sunday we went down to Regatta to hear Blues Traveler and see the fireworks. The Boulevard was jammed, and it was a wonderful event. It took me an hour to walk from the stage to the end of the festival area all the way down beside CASCI. There was a “dividing line” near the old courthouse passed which beer was not allowed. In that area there where rides and carnival type offerings for the young at heart. It was a well laid out event. The people I saw were enjoying themselves. Haddad Park was packed for the fireworks which were as good as any I have seen. The weather behaved. All in all, a great event for the city and for all the folks in attendance. No sternwheelers but the river was crowded with boats of all types. Nicely done.
