One of my favorite things about summer is the fact that it's officially outdoor concert season.

With outdoor concerts comes absolutely amazing tailgates. Two weeks ago, one of the biggest outdoor festivals in the northeast came through town and we knew the tailgate experience would be one of a kind.

I headed out to the parking lot of the 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival and was not disappointed. They knew how to party.

I met some great folks, including "Ma" who had one of the best t-shirts I saw all weekend. I also met a group of friends who introduced me to beer ball, which is one of the more intense drinking games I have ever played.

Either way I had a great time at the Taste of Country Music Festival, but my favorite part was partaking in a few tailgating activities with my new friends.

Part 2 with my first beer ball experience is coming soon. Stay tuned and we'll see you out at the tailgate next year.
