The pretty cool thing about living in Pensacola is that many celebrities vacation in the area. Some are smart enough to invest in a house or condo. Keifer and Shawna from Thompson Square happen to already be from the area and live about an hour or so from Pensacola. Our local radio station, Cat Country 98.7 decided to host their morning show at the Pensacola Crawfish Festival. So at 3 a.m. they set up shop on the entertainment stage at the festival and hosted their show that morning. But that’s not all because that morning they announced a surprise acoustic set.
Toadlick Music Festival is a three-day music festival in Dothan, Alabama. In its fourth consecutive year, it continues to grow and improve each year. I’ve been attending Toadlick since its inception four years ago. As you know from following my blog or me, I love festivals and I love country music. My friends and I laugh at the fact that I have to turn off my “festival brain” when attending events so that I can enjoy the actual event. Over the past few years, it has progressively become easier. This year was no different as people would ask me things and I was able to steal a term that my friend Beej introduced me to – “not my circus, not my monkeys.” However, I wanted to include a recap of Toadlick 2015!
It’s that time of year again where we load up the car with the hole dang caboodle and head to Dothan, Alabama for the annual Toadlick Music Festival. We just gave away a pair of tickets to the festival on our new Facebook page, Southern Sparkplug. Are you headed to the festival? Whether you’re a festival novice or a newbie, it’s always good to have a reminder about the type of things you need to remember to bring. Toadlick Music Festival’s blog features “11 Must Haves for Toadlick Music Festival” on their site here. Save
