Down By the River

by Betty Meade May. 13, 2009 4305 views

Riverfest is a yearly celebration that occurs on the banks of the Arkansas River, which runs through Wichita, Kansas. What began as a small celebration in 1970 has now turned into a 10 day festival with everything from concerts to games. Kansas (the band) played on the West Bank stage last Friday night. It was a beautiful, warm night and the band was amazing. Following the concert, we watched a fireworks display and then strolled along the river. On Sunday, we went back to the river to get some day shots. It seemed like everyone was out enjoying the day….

Love the symmetrical bridge by night and the last one- 'the vanishing point' and all that...

Seeing the Kansas photo reminded me of seeing them in the '70s with bands like Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Styx, etc. Thanks for the memory. Keep up the good work.

This is nice set. I especially like the people and how they're frozen in their own pursuits.
