One of my favorite moments of summer 2017 was checking an item off my bucket list by attending Ponderosa, my first ever music festival. I was a bit apprehensive, as it never seems to fail that when I go to a live music show, the tallest person there decides that the best place to stand is right in front of my 5’ 3” self, and while I enjoy just listening, being able to see is definitely part of the experience. It was a pleasant surprise to arrive at this festival, and find that it was small, laid-back, and everyone was very friendly. Never before have I been able to stand at the front of the stage for every show! It was also an opportunity to make new friends, as the couple we went with had invited another couple from Vancouver to join us. We all pitched our tents together, and proceeded to spend the next 3 days splashing around in the creek by the campsite, pooling our food to cook delicious meals, and of course introducing each other to our favorite bands out of the ones who had come to perform. It was a wonderful weekend, and I can’t wait to go back next year!
