Thanks to social media (Twitter and Facebook), we spotted a lot of people having a good time at Riverfront Park. Randy shared the following about the food and drink options:
"Just back from the show. Thanks again for the tickets. The bands were great! In fact the opener will be at Boone's next Thursday, playing acoustic. I will likely go.
Lots of food options at the show (below is what I remember)
Chicken Jambalaya $7
Mac & cheese $5
4 dessert sampler $5
Wimpy burgers $2 (sold out)
Willamette Valley Cheese Co.
$5 4 slices + bread from Cascade Baking
$6 Pulled chicken sando
Molly's Vivacious Eats
Pesto Chicken Salad (had no chicken small portion, felt ripped off)
Crab & shrimp cakes
Homemade flavored water $3
Strawberry Skewers (dessert)
Santiam Wine Co.
Short lines, but I did not drink
Get there early
Set up closer to the river to be in the shade
Bring a sand chair or a blanket (the ground is hard though)
Eat early before long lines form or go get food between the opener & the headliner or eat somewhere downtown like Jonathan's or Venti's (event prices & portion sizes in effect)
Bring earplugs if you sit close (loud)
Bring a sweatshirt because after dark by the river it can be cooler
Best food deals: the Whimpy Burger & cheese from Willamette Valley Cheese Co.
If you talk to the promoters, suggest the food vendors have larger easy to read menus. Jonathan's was large & easy to read, Molly's I needed glasses."
