One of the first places that my wife and I ever went for a date was an all-day concert in Tampa, Florida.
The concert was held at the fairgrounds and it featured a dozen different Rock and alternative bands.
At the time, I had never been to an all-day concert. I was a little nervous about the event, because it was held in the middle of July during the time when the temperatures are almost 100 degrees. My wife told me not to worry, because we would find a couple of places that had air conditioning. We stayed at a hotel in Tampa the night before the concert, so we could get up early in the morning and get the best parking at the event arena. The first concert started at 10:00 in the morning. It was 80 degrees when we woke up and 91 degrees when we parked our car at 9:45. My wife and I had a great time and we saw a lot of bands on that day. Unfortunately, it wasn’t easy to find a place with air conditioning and I was miserable in the afternoon. The only tent with AC was the eating area and it was constantly filled with people. I was wearing jeans and cowboy boots. I should have worn a tank top and speedos. The bathrooms were portable facilities without AC. Until the sun went down, I was hot and uncomfortable. Even though I could have been cooler in Tampa that day, the all day concert was an amazing experience and the first of many all day concerts that my wife and I enjoy together.
