Heart Of America Living History Blues Fest. Urbandale Iowa

The Central Iowa Blues Society, and Living History Farms present a huge blues festival September 5-6th in Urbandale Iowa. Urbandale is a western suburb of Des Moines. The Living History Farms is right off of the Hickman Avenue exit on I35/80. I have been to some large shows at the Living History Farm. They had a Chautauqua there in the 80s, with multiple stages, very cool show, and I met Pete Seeger there. Also Pope John Paul II said mass to 300,000 people back in the early 80s. So they can handle large crowds! This promises to be a great show so be sure to get your face in the place.

Sooooooooo, I wonder if they got a waver to allow dancing in Urbandale:-) Click HERE to read about Iowa's own Footloose.
