What better way to celebrate Independence Day here in America than by listening to the music of those four fabulous lads from across the pond? Yes, I am talking about “The Beatles.”
While I love to travel in our travel trailer, there’s no place I’d rather be for the 4th of July holiday than home. Nothing beats the activities available right here in New Town St. Charles and in Frontier Park which is in downtown historic St. Charles right along the mighty Missouri River.
Today, Dan and I rode our bikes down to Frontier Park where “Riverfest” was being held. “Riverfest” is a three day event to celebrate the July 4th holiday. We went to see and hear the group, “Ticket to the Beatles.” They played from 2 to 4 pm.
I absolutely loved it. The last time we had seen this group was at Spencer Library, and that was before Covid hit. The library was rockin’ that night, and every single person there was in the happiest mood ever.
Maybe that’s why I love Beatles music so much. It’s happy. It’s about love. And yes, some other stuff, too. I grew up in the sixties, but I had four older siblings. So, I grew up listening to John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Being outside, listening to the music of the Beatles. Can it get any better? Yes. Yes, it can.
About halfway through the music, I asked Dan to buy me a Coke Zero. He came back instead with an ice cream cone covered with a hundred cookie dough pellets, all dipped in chocolate on a sugar cone. He said he made an executive decision. Soon after, the band appropriately decided to play “She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah.”
The concert ended with one of my most favorite lyrical lines:
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
Whatever you are doing this holiday weekend, I hope you are enjoying it.
