Hot Day, Hot Music
A hot day with hot music is an apt summary of Lewisville’s 2009 Beach Blast held this past Saturday (June 20). The high temps didn’t seem to matter to those who danced away in the faux beach area in front of the bandstand. Music, laughter, and the wonderful aroma of grilled burgers, hot dogs, ribs and other treats filled the air around Shallowford Square.
The Fabulous Kays, from Charlotte, opened the event and were followed by The Embers.
For the second year in a row, my photo coverage of the Beach Blast was cut short due to the onset of severe leg cramps. Although I thought I had prepared adequately to prevent leg cramps this year, my strategy failed. Unfortunately, my early departure meant that I made no photos of the latter portion of the event — and thus no photos of The Embers — for which I am disappointed.
I’d like to thank members of the Lewisville Fire Department who came to my aid once more. (Gentlemen, I honestly did not want to meet you again under such circumstances!) Others who assisted me before the Fire Department guys took over were several unknown folks, as well as David Matthews, a town staff person. Thank you all for your care and concern.
I did manage, though, to take a number of photos before my early departure. If you’d like to see some highlights of the event before I was literally hauled off the scene, please visit the 2009 Beach Blast photo gallery. And if you’re curious, check out last year’s Beach Blast photos in the 2008 Beach Blast photo gallery.
