Wet grass festival a blast
Nighttime rains did not put a damper on the ninth annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival.
Though ground saturation meant this year's event parking was a little bit shifted, there was no shortage of fans parking their lawn chairs in front of the band shell at the Cass County Fairgrounds in Pine River for bands like Audie Blaylock & Redline, Shaffers Lost 40 and the returning Monroe Crossing.
If anything, the cloudy weather meant festival goers could enjoy the shows in comfort.
This year's event featured 13 lively bands, including The Spinney Brothers, the Lakes Bluegrass Festival's first international band.
