FRIDAY, MAY 31st – FRIDAY NIGHT LAUNCH PARTY
The gates are closed on another Friday Night Launch Party in the AIP Spirit Tent. It may have rained on and off, but that didn't dampen the spirits of the over 500 Dallas Smith fans that were treated to a great concert under the stars. The evening started off with our first ever Karaoke competition. All 8 Finalists rocked the stage tonight. We are proud to announce the winner, Chantelle Denholm who wowed the crowd with All Jacked Up by Gretchen Wilson. After a bit of rain, Crystal Gage took the stage and again gained new fans with her amazing vocals and sweet personality. She is a very talented young lady! Just before Dallas Smith took the stage, the sky dried up and the crowd was elated.
Art in the Park officially opens Saturday at 10:00am - The Spirit Tent will again offer great talent including Timeline, Toppermost Beatles tribute band, Country Star Leah Daniels, and British Beat 66. Hope to see everyone there!
