The event is a lot of fun, and when I was there, people were allowed to bring their dogs, as long as they were on a leash.  People set up launch chairs, blankets, and were just having a great time under the stars.

Maddy Braun, the Headliner for the show, is a very talented girl who plays guitar, piano, writes her own music, and has a very unique voice. She's one of the busiest performers in the area...especially considering she's only a teenager!  She performs at many area bars and restaurants in duo's and with full bands, and does a variety of music, ranging from country, to pop, to rock.
