Aquapalooza on Lake Travis

Aquapalooza came to Austin this year. Brad Paisley headlined a concert on July 10 that was only accessible by boat.

Our weekend started when we launched the boat about 5:45 am Friday morning, July 9th. There were already tons of boats lined up, despite the rain and early hour!
Once we got tied up and settled in and had a short nap, the sun came out. We cruised around on the dinghy to check things out.
A shuttle boat took us to shore to get free goodies and souvenirs. Saw Brad Paisley's trailer but not the man himself. Rumor has it he was out on his jet ski until showtime.
Waiting for the concert to start, Betsy and I (yes, two Betsy's) got in a friendly wrestling match. I cheated and she STILL won!
Finally, concert starts.
They claim over 7000 boats showed up! We were about row 6 on the left side.
