On Friday night, I checked off another item from my 2012 Summer Bucket List by attending an outdoor concert at Red Butte Garden. My friend Arri is a season ticket holder and she invited our friend Kristyn and I to the Colbie Caillet and Gavin DeGraw show. We had a fabulous time! Well, except for the 20 minute down pour that delayed the concert by about 30 minutes! :)
If you have a chance to see a concert at Red Butte Garden, I highly recommend it! It's a beautiful venue, nestled up to the gorgeous Utah mountains. There is VIP chair seating, but most people prefer to spread out a blanket and chairs and bring a picnic dinner. You are allowed to bring in food and alcohol, and some people are really creative with their set up! Tables, candles, etc. So much fun!
When we arrived (well, after our friends waited in line to save a spot for HOURS - that is the one downfall), we got all set up with our blankets, chairs, food and drinks!
Once we got all set up and started to eat and drink....the clouds rolled in and it rained.
What a downer!
Once the rain stopped, the fun began!
Then my phone died, and then were no more photos!
But take my word for it......lots of singing and dancing and having a blast! I really enjoyed both Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillet! They both did a great job keeping the crown entertained and involved!
If you are in Utah, you really should check out Red Butte Garden Concert Series! Or any other outdoor concert series in your area! There is something fabulous about sitting outside listening to live music!
Question for you: What was the last outdoor concert you attended? Or any concert for that matter?
Happy Tuesday! I hope it's a good one!
