Beer Gardens, Concordia Missouri

Concordia, Missouri. The town I went to high school in. The town my parents, nana and brother still live in. The town I couldn’t wait to leave. The town I enjoy going to visit now that I’m older. Every fall, Concordia blocks off Main Street, puts up a carnival and beer garden, invites bands to show off their marching skills and is host to the funniest parade I’ve ever been too.

This was taken on Saturday evening the weekend of my 5 year high school reunion, in the Concordia Beer Garden. The spinning goodness in the background are the carnival rides. Wow, now that I think about it, this fall would be my 10 year high school reunion. That is crazy! I wonder if I’ll make it back home for that. I’ll certainly try.

Gary and I booked another wedding last night. In case you didn’t know, we are Phoenix Wedding Photographers. It’s something we both absolutely enjoy doing. What could be more fun than photographing the happiest day in someone’s life? It’s a big party and everyone is smiling and having a wonderful time! Fortunately we haven’t met an unhappy couple yet or any bride-zilla’s! I’m starting to think bride-zilla’s don’t exist!

I'm a pinhole photographer. Who loves to write and daydream and experience everything.

  1. Hi Sheila. I’d ask you if you were a Jock or a Neck, but that sounds awfully rude to anyone who doesn’t know what those mean in a Concordia, Mo., context. Found your blog by way of a Google Alert, by the way. I’m going to spend some time reading.

  2. WOW!! I haven’t heard the terms ‘jock’ or ‘neck’ in ages!
    I went to CHS! I was a marching Oriole!
