Eight to the Bar

I have had too many Elizabeth Park photos recently, so I promised myself to give the park a rest. 

Then I remembered the free concerts on Wednesday nights.  Last Wednesday, the local group Eight to the Bar performed for a huge crowd.  It was like a circus with a main stage and many side shows.  One of my favorite side shows was the women and children working out with hula hoops.

You can never show too many Elizabeth Park photos! It's my favourite place that I've never visited. Great to see so many people enjoying what looks like a warm summer's evening.

I tried to find 'the bar' in this shot. A cold one to quench a thirst. hahaha

This concert really drew a huge crowd.
It's been a long time since I tried to spin a hula hoop!

I will never tire of Elizabeth Park, I am thrilled that you share with us. I'm impressed with anyone other than kids, teen, college students or athletes who can do the hula hoop, I tried it recently and was surprised how much effort was involved.

Youthful energy is always interesting to watch. Summer concerts, either large or small, are wonderful events.

Nice images - great lighting. I sure do remember the hula hoops. :)

Looks like everyone had a good time or the best time ever! And a perfect evening. Don't see many hula hoops these days, but Lois Anne and our granddaughter got going with the hula hoop a couple of years ago. Milady could do hundreds of revolutions. I could do maybe one if lucky!

Stay cool!

Makes me think back to Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen. My spine would not tolerate this.

It's not as easy as it looks! Fantastic attendance at this event.

Last time I saw someone working out with a hula hoop was Grace Jones on a FANTASTIC performance of 'Slave to the Rhythm' on Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee. Check the video on Youtube, it's worth it.
