Well, I guess I had better start looking for accommodations and parking now…..Last time I tried to attend the state fair neither were available.
Flogging Molly is a great band to drink to.
If I was only younger!
Flogging Molly? I’m surprised they got the gig with such an un-woke name.
I like Megadeth, I might actually go to the fair this year.
