Thursday was a hot day. no other way to say it. The east coast lay under a blanket of heat and even central Vermont felt its effects. People found there own ways to keep cool, mostly by sitting in the river up to their necks. The music was fine, even though most people stayed away until the sun sank below the hills to the southwest of the beautiful Tunbridge fairgrounds. Evan Carl, seemingly recovered from his recent health problems was a lively emcee who kept things moving along nicely.
