Trampled by Turtles at Bayfront Park 7-7-18

Jul 8, 2018

Trampled by Turtles' first show at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth since reuniting after a hiatus to release their latest album, Life is Good on the Open Road, drew a sell-out crowd of around 10,000.

Clear skies and warm temperatures paired with a cooling breeze made for a gorgeous outdoor experience as a full day of local and regional artists performed. Check out photos from the show below, and find more on our Facebook page.

The park slowly filled throughout the afternoon. Some people sat on blankets, some on chairs, and some on the inflatable couches you see here. There were many families with small children, so strollers were plentiful.
