Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach, Alabama
Friday, July 1, 2011
I was completely pumped when I saw the info about this event come across Twitter. When I was in high school, we used to go see these kind of shows at the Louisiana Nature Center. The show was in the planetarium and they were always so cool! My kids love music, especially my son, so I thought this would be a great family night.
It was a small crowd so getting in and out with parking, lines, and seating was a breeze. The show was pretty cool to my husband & I. My son said it was, "really cool but really loud", and my daughter kept saying, "I don't get it, what is this about?". LOL
Hubs & I had a good laugh at the kids' reactions then we decided to go ahead and get them the glasses. You know, the drug effect without the drugs (We didn't explain that part to the kids). The show was much more interesting to them with the glasses.
Overall, it was fun and we had a good night. I will say that the show being outdoors made it difficult for them to create the full effects of the show. It was not as vibrant as other shows I had seen but for the price - it was well worth it. (We caught the BOGO free and the kids were free so total ticket price = $10)
The highlight of the night was my son hip hop dancing, no shirt and no shoes, to the music of Pink Floyd. He drew quite a crowd for his performance, at one point there were 7 people video-taping him. I'm assuming it will end up on YouTube somewhere......Oh look - there it is below. :)
