|Officially billed as "Sights and Sounds of Galatyn Park", this
one day festival replaced the multi-weekend festival that Richardson has had in past
years. The date was switched for this year only, from early May to late June.
But someone forgot to tell Mother Nature, as the weather was more typical of early April
than late June. Cool temperatures and high winds prevailed, with brief downpours
early in the afternoon.
The highlight was the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, with their first Dallas area appearance in about 5 years. These guys played up a storm, even as a storm blew around them. Somehow, despite skies that brought to mind cries of "Auntie Em, Auntie Em", and winds that turned plastic chairs into projectiles, the set was rain free, and the guys didn't let little things like the roof of the stage blowing off deter from the music.
