Every year for the past 26 years Minnesotians have celebrated the 4th of July with an outdoor festival called the Taste of Minnesota. It was held until recently at the State Capitol Building in St Paul. Now it is held across the Mississippi river at a park called Harriet Island.
They have rides and lots of over priced food and best of all they have free music.
Last year they had, and I saw, Alice Cooper, David Cassidy, Davey Jones, The Beach Boy, Deep Purple , George Throughgood and others that I didnt see. These are all free. As is this years lineup.
This year so far I saw, REO Speedwagon,
Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods, (Billy dont be a hero)
The Cowsills, (Hair)
Barry Williamson, (Greg Brady), Singing with Susie Cowsill,
The bay City Rollers, (S A T U R D A Y Night),
And a super great concert was Badfinger,
Heres what it looked like today. St Paul is the large buildings across the river.
Tomorrow Saturday is Seether and after that The Trashmen.
And finally Sunday is the Zombies and then Eddie Money.
Every night they have huge fireworks at 10:15.
All paid for by the Powerball lottery.
