Rain Doesn't Deter Concert Fans

Fans of summertime, music and fireworks couldn’t be swayed by a soggy Friday. They flocked to the annual Bank of the West Celebrates America concert in Memorial Park.

People spent the day staking out their sodden turf for an evening of celebration.

Weather should be something everyone keeps on their mind. Ten years ago Hope Borseth was at the concert with her grandmother. She said it was a day much like today until she was hit by lightning.

"Don't risk it,” she said. “If it starts storming, get out of there. If there is lightning watches get out of there."

Make sure to wear a rain jacket and shoes that you don't mind getting wet and muddy.

Last year’s celebration drew nearly 75,000 people. That number could grow this year with more contemporary bands in the line-up.

One fan told us, “We are excited to see Smash Mouth and Uncle Kracker."

Another was looking forward to hearing, “Blues Traveler. Got to hear the harmonica."

Sugar Ray and the Talbott Brothers were also in the line-up.

It’s a free concert. Everyone’s invited.
