This tour is going by so fast! We just finished our run at the Porter County Fair, which was great, as usual. We met a lot of new people, and saw a lot of old friends as well.
Our friends Larry and Neil were running our sound, and by the end of the week they were also doing all kinds of fancy things with the lights and stuff, which was awesome. So a big thanks to them, they made us look good!
It was still hot, but we arrived at the fair in a complete downpour and had to unpack the car in the rain and got completely soaked.
We got to watch the horse drill teams, as well as some barrell racing, and finally got to see the Swifty Swine pig races that our friends run.
When we weren't performing we stocked up the fridge in the hotel room with supplies for PB&J sandwhiches and pickles, plus plenty of water because it was so hot!
Here are some pictures of us with new friends we met at the fair:
Now we're on our way out to Wisconsin for the Wisconsin state fair. See you after the shows!
We made it successfully to Indiana yesterday for the first stop on our tour this Summer. To start off the day we were up bright and early for a little show in an outdoors tent for Senior Citizens' day. Then we did our main show which was lots of fun! It was really hot outside (to us, but the people who live here said it was only mild, oh boy!)
Afterwards we got to meet a lot of people, some new people and a lot of familiar faces from our previous years in Indiana, including our sound guy from South Bend last year (shout-out to Rick!)
We also got to go on the ferris wheel, which we don't get to do very often, believe it or not. Even though we perform at a lot of fairs, we very rarely have enough time to try out the rides, so this was really fun!
Next up - Valparaiso for the Porter County Fair!
P.S. are you following us on twitter? Those will be the most frequent updates and behind-the-scenes photos. ;-)
Here is our latest Tour Journal (#5) which tells all about our experience performing at the University of Notre Dame for the women's basketball halftime show last week. It was an awesome show with almost 9,000 people there and now you can come along with us!!
