Bowiefest 2010 Pictures

Thousands of people visited Allen Pond Park yesterday for a hot and humid Bowiefest 2010. Despite dark clouds and the threat of thundershowers, the event remained rain free.

There were many performances held throughout the day, and I only had the chance to take pictures of a few of them.


Reptile World. Live reptile show from the amphitheater.




Good Kemistry Band got funky at the East Pavilion





Bowie Deputy Police Chief John Nesky performed at the East Pavilion





The Banjo Man walked through the park while plucking tunes on his banjo.





Greenbelt Sity Stars performed, and they handed out free jump ropes courtesy of Prince George's Councilwoman Ingrid Turner as part of a childhood obesity awareness campaign.

Train ride





Most of the amusement "rides" were of the inflatable variety.





Slide





Prince George's County Councilwoman Ingrid Turner sponsored this free "rock" wall.





Pony Rides





Several information booths and vendors were present. The man on the right stopped by a booth with his toddler to have his palm read. I overheard the woman say that a lot of dirty laundry and high tuition payments were in his future. Brilliant!





Bowiefeast: The Food Vendors





It was a hot and humid day - a great day for an icy treat or an ice cream.





AJ's Hawaiian Iceez: Where it's always OK to eat yellow snow!





A mist tent was set-up to help people cool down.





Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League had a few large dogs at its information booth.





The paddle boats were a popular activity.















Parking at Allen Pond Park was limited. The City offered shuttle service from the Park & Ride lot on Northview Drive. There was also plenty of parking at Northview Elementary School
