Monday, July 22 - Today at the California Mid-State Fair

New Pictureby Tina Swithin

The 2013 California Mid State Fair is in full swing and I am just a tad bit excited about tonight's show.  I'll admit it: I may have a little crush on John Mayer.  There, I said it.  My husband, being the wonderful guy that he is, bought tickets to tonight's show so you will find me somewhere in the crowd belting out, "Your Body is a Wonderland" in my best singing voice. 

The Chumash Grandstand
has been on fire over the past five nights with the likes of Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, Adam Lambert, Sail Rock 2013 and Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls. My friend, Brittany App of App’s Photography kindly sent me photos from last night's show and I must admit that I am jeleous of her job.  Out of the kindness of my heart (and because it's John Mayer), I offered up my expert camera carrying skills for tonight's concert although she hasn't taken me up on my offer.  Yet.  

Be sure to get out to the fair this week as there is still so much more to come! Rascal Flatts with the Band Perry (Tuesday), Van Halen (Wednesday), Brit Floyd (Thursday) and Huey Lewis & the News (Friday).  The final round-up includes the Country Rodeo Finals and the Monster Truck Show. 

Before heading into the Grandstand Arena, be sure to catch one of the fantastic free shows!
