For me, the highlight of the Illectric River Festival was seeing Borgeous perform. His set was most awesome. 🙂
We were lucky to have some cool breezes off of the Brazos River at the Illectric River Festival. We also had some nice views of McLane Stadium across the river.
The Illectric River Festival even had balloon art. The team from Balloonski was working hard. Pretty soon the whole festival was filled with creative balloons.
The Illectric River Festival was also filled with graffiti artists at work. I love it when festivals do this sort of thing. Throughout the day and night, you get to watch these artists bring their creations to life.
The Illectric River EDM Festival was most awesome. Here are some photos of the art posted around the festival grounds. A lot of this art was created by Nicky Davis from Houston and it was so much fun.
After a day of exploring and hiking in Waco, and since I was still missing Las Vegas, I found the Vegas Buffet for some Chinese Food.
I think this is why I like hiking so much. In the span of a few hours on the Cotton Belt Trail, I went from feeling good in the cool cloudy weather, to miserable and soaking wet in a downpour, to a state of awe at seeing a magnificent rainbow at the end of the trail.
This is a fun place to visit in Waco. Besides the Market, they have food trucks, a lawn to play on, picnic tables to enjoy, swing sets, and other groovy things to see and do.
This Sculpture, among others, can be found at the end of the Waco Suspension Bridge. It is a great depiction of a Vaquero herding some longhorn cattle.
The Waco Suspension Bridge is a beautiful historic bridge that was first opened in 1870. It was once a toll bridge for stagecoaches, cattle, and humans. The only other way to cross the Brazos River at the time was by ferry. Now the bridge is a pedestrian bridge only, and is full of activity on beautiful, sunny days like today.
