There are a few things in life that are inherently good. In my opinion, those include: live music, carnival food, thrill rides, good weather, quality time with friends, and animal freak shows. The Union County Music Fest provides all of the above and more, and all at the super low price of … well, NOTHING!
Let’s start with the logistics. Music Fest is held in association with the county fair, which accounts for the rickety and slightly scary rides, the carnival food (funnel cake, anyone!?), and the Anibal freak show. Freaks on display included a zebra/donkey cross breed, sheep with five legs, and a midget bull. Awesome!
Now on to the music. There was a great mix of styles on display, and the three bands I saw each provided a very different experience. The Zombies, a ’60s psychedelic band that was popular with the older crowd, but still were pleasantly enjoyable.
