It helped that the event was happening in not to far away Frontier Park in St. Charles. Though it's only a few miles from my place I rarely have ever crossed over the Missouri River to the St. Charles side. I don't know why but just never seemed to have had any good reason to go over that side, strange. And strange it felt indeed once I landed in old St. Charles, the brick-paved streets, historic looking buildings, kind of touristy but charming never the less. Certainly something that is now on my mind to revisit and explore.
Back to the festivities, as expected the harsh sunlight made it really difficult to get keepers, below are a few selected photographs. You can check out the gallery for more.
