It’s the weekend …love the smell of the fresh cut grass. I look around and I see families on blankets, girlfriends talking, a mom and a dad having a date night, a grandma and grandpa holding hands sitting in their lawn chairs, bunch of guys walking around saying hi! to the ladies. I smell French fries cooking in the Beach Fries food truck. Kids are running around laughing and giggling. I pass my teacher, I see an old friend, I wave to some friends who are excited to be up close and personal.
This is where people near and far come out to enjoy a nice night. Relax after a long week. Get together with family and friends. You don’t want to miss this.
Last year my brother graduated high school. He spent many weekends of the summer enjoying concerts with his friends at Celebrate Virginia Live. He knew soon they would all part ways. They were all going to different colleges, some in different states. He knew things would change, but the one memory they all had was those summer nights.
I love when he calls home from college and asks, “Hey Megs, who is coming to CVL this year”. His first year of college has ended and he is on his way home soon. Aside from searching for a job, he plans on reuniting with the guys and head to CVL to see Billy Currington on May 17th.
In two weeks I will be out there walking the grounds saying hi to everyone, waving from the stage, as I stand with my friends from Thunder 104.5. I can’t wait to meet the vendors, talk to the sponsors, and welcome all the amazing artists who chose Fredericksburg as a stop on their concert tour.
The weather is getting warmer and summer is just around the corner. Music means memories and there is no better place then having a concert close to home.
Trust me…you don’t want to miss this.
