Medicine Park was the ‘it’ place to be this Labor Day weekend with the Mayor’s Blues Ball going on - folks from all over Southwest Oklahoma came together to celebrate.

A number of excellent musicians took to the stage over the three-day event and they all had something in comment – stringing their guitars and rocking the crowd from sun up to sun down.

The hot weather, 110 degree at some point, didn’t prevent people from coming out. In fact lots of families decided to cool down in the near by Bath Lake all while blues music was blaring. And as the music was food to the soul, so were the many little street vendors who were BBQ on the street that fed the body. Can you ask for more – spending time with all the people you love, soaking up the last of the summer days, all while listening to blues tunes.

And though the streets were packed with parents and their kids during the day, the night was a totally different story. Music fest spectators packed the little streets in Medicine Park overtaking ever lawn, street corner and bench just so they can see the musicians. Some even got up and dance,d all in all the 6th Annual Mayor’s Blues Ball Festival was a hit.
