Riot Fest 2012

The annual multiple-day punk fest turned into an outdoor carnival in Humboldt Park this year, with probably the best lineup yet. Besides the usual carnival rides and games were various performers wandering around the festival grounds – a marching band, jugglers, dancers, hula hoopers.. fun for the whole family!

Seriously though, seeing little kids rocking out on their parents’ shoulders during the Descendents, Jesus & Mary Chain, et. al. was pretty priceless.
