March 3rd ,Thursday night…..
As the sun set on Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival there is nothing but excitement in the air as people arrive all hours of the night to set up camp. People have come from near and far to attend the event, some driving upwards of 17 hours to get here. As the music gets turned up later into the night the excitement builds for the main venue to open Friday at noon time.
Best story I’ve heard:
I’m camping next to a guy named Steve, his journey started in Richmond Virginia. Unfortunately Steve’s car broke down, but this did not deter him in the slightest. So instead he took a greyhound bus to the festival, arriving Thursday evening just in time to get the party started.
