This year was my first time to Camp Euforia, and it will not be the last! What started in 2004 as a fan appreciation show, put on by Euforquestra as a free event, has turned into a full on festival. The weather was hot and sticky as usual for Iowa in July, but that didn't stop anyone from having a great time.

Next up on the MC Ginsberg Stage, or Main Stage, was the Henhouse Prowlers.
