Lots of people I know are headed to Hershey Park today. There’s a huge festival show this weekend, with lots of other fun activities on tap.
It’s a 2 stage show, with New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, the Wanted and the Fray. Holy boyband takeover. It’s hard to believe that they’re all still performing. This isn’t just boyband-palooza though. It’s rounded out with sexy in the form of LL Cool J and a dash of estrogen with Kelly Clarkson and Carly Rae Jepsen.
I did consider going for about…a nanosecond. Honestly, there is NOTHING appealing about hanging out in the hot sun with a bunch of drunk boyband fans, who are typically the craziest fans out there. To have mulitple boy bands & their fans in one place is truly a scary proposition. I’d need to eat half the chocolate in the park to even consider dealing with that mess.
Other events associated are a Rock n Jock baseball game between NKOTB and Backstreet Boys, Donnie Wahlberg’s birthday party and concert after party with DJ Pauly D, and a Saturday after party. It’s a full weekend of insanity.
If you live near PA, maybe you’ll want to check it out. Me? I’ll have a chocolate martini and toast my sanity.
