Pandemic Pete was on hand all day to do sound and keep the music going between sets,

These two gentlemen were enjoying the music and demanded to have their photo taken,

The May Day Marching Band got going just as the rain came,

Then PARTY! came on, and brought some 80s rock-n-roll energy,

Thanks to all the performers, vendors, organizations, and volunteers.  And thanks to everyone who came out to help make this a great day!
