Haley Moore (I may not be spelling this right) from Jackson sang the National Anthem on the main stage, unaccompanied. It always amazes me when people do this–the National Anthem, while always familiar, is pretty dang hard to sing.
Southwest Minnesota Christian High School drum corps is playing. They’re awesome! I’ll try to put a video clip up at a later time–can’t really edit video very well from the beach. Too much noise (often of the musical variety).
On a more personal note, don’t put your laptop on the ground or you risk having an ant in the keys. I got him out, though.
