We got to the park about 45 minutes early and were towards the front of the VIP line. I think we were maybe 10 or 12 back from the front. They moved us around a couple of times, then they came down the line and checked IDs for the beer wristbands. About 30 minutes before opening we went into the chutes where they checked bags and issued the VIP wristbands.
One of the joints, I believe it was Meat You Anywhere, came down the line with brisket samples while we waited. Nice!
This is a nice sized fest with plenty of shady spots to hang out in. The Trailer Park Olympiks included fun stuff like a bull riding machine, toilet seat toss, and armadillo races.
Once the general admission hordes came in the party was pretty much over for us. We skedaddled around 3:30 pm and headed home for a much needed meat coma nap.
I have several more photo sections below. 1 set of meat and crowd scenes and two of booths and food. As always, click on any photo for a larger view.
