2012 Wallace Blues Festival

Ambiance

July 13th and 14th, 2012

Best 2012 Blues Festival awarded to Wallace Idaho
Even Bigger in 2013

By all accounts, this was a great success for the town, the performers and the approximately 2000 Blues Fans who attended our first annual Historic Wallace Blues Festival. The most amazing thing is that our little town of 784 individuals pulled this event off in 90 days from concept initiation! We could not have done it, of course, without the guidance, promotion and production services of Craig Heimbigner, dba Too Far North Productions. Please contact him at kraag@msn.com or (509) 534-1187 with your impressions of the first annual Historic Wallace Blues Festival.

Personally, I had a blast, dancing my legs to exhaustion while taking 195 photos on Saturday. This is the second part of my recording of this premier Wallace festival. The first part is a reprise of the music on Saturday that highlights the nine performers that I was able to photograph and acknowledges the five blues artists for whom I do not have representative festival photos. This second page captures a timeline of the festival's ambiance showing the crowd, the dancers, the beer garden, the vendors and the volunteers.
