6-1 to 6-2-2018 Riverlights Music Festival in South Bend, IN

Still in northern Indiana, our friend Chris told us about a music festival in South Bend. We saw it as we explored downtown South Bend on our own on the Friday evening before we met up with her.

We saw lots of people out on the East Race Waterway, where the St. Joseph River is diverted and they created a whitewater course. 

We walked the riverwalk next to the St. Joe as well.

We later learned that all the people on the East Race were going for free as a part of South Bend's "Best Week Ever".

There were lots of things going on downtown as a part of this promotion.

We had dinner downtown and saw the river lights.
On the walk back we happened upon a bridge where it looked like they were going to set off fireworks. So, we decided to
stay for a bit.

We were shocked that we could be so close to the action, and basically have a front row seat.

The next day we met up with our friend Chris for the festival and to explore downtown with her.

We ran into a couple of Eric's college friends, and their daughter was trying rafting on the East Race with some friends.

We walked around and found a nice park to chill for a bit.

Back at the festival we found and shared a delicious Thai Peanut Salad from a food tent: zucchini noodles, green papaya, daikon radish carrots, red cabbage, Thai peanut satay sauce, peanuts, pickled red onions - yum!.

The bands rotated between two stages, so there was always music. Some we liked, some we didn't, but it was fun.
