Algona Freedom Fest was an absolute blast! Met up with a ton of great friends there and left with many new friends! Yes, I know there is CoVid out there. No, we were not social distancing. Yes, I will be avoiding people for awhile now. Yes, it was all worth it!! Plus, I am now an ABATE member!
It was a scorcher - every day was well over 85 and humid with zero cloud cover. Tent camping was not as miserable as I expected it to be - I came prepared with lots of water, a frog togg cooling towel to sleep on, and even a mini fan, which was pretty bulky, but well worth the space it took up. Just having a bit of breeze on my face gave me the false belief that it was cooler than it actually was! They had ice trucks going around often to keep the coolers chilled. There were food trucks and lots of vendors throughout the day and well into the night.
Went to bed with a roadway outside my tent, woke up with a mini city!
There were bands, bike contests, butt contests, drag pulls, foam pit, stunt shows, midget bowling, mud wrestling, you name it, they had it. All the entertainment one could hope for and dream of!! And for once in my life, I actually got to SEE some of those things in action!!!

This guy said he has $100k into graphics and sound system on the bike!

HAzy night watching the concerts
While I have a TON of pictures from the event, there are not a lot of 'family friendly' ones to post (hey, it's HOT and it's #Merica and people were everywhere showing off their freedom!! ). LOL!
