Day 16 |
Today was Kadenas Rockin the Block festival for our 4th of July celebrations. Kadena FSS brought in Gavin Degraw for an amazing concert! Seriously, it was one of the top two best concerts I have been to on island, the other was Daughtry in which I won meet and greet passes! 🙂 He is a down to earth, sweet, and super nice person which is amazing! We arrived early so the kids could ride some rides then went to scope out a spot in the back for the concert where the kids could still get up and play but still enjoy the show. Right after the show we ended with fireworks. Now, I have been on Okinawa for 5.5 years and the best firework shows Ive seen have always been off base done by the Japanese. But this year kadena out did themselves, it was the best show theyve put on to date. My son wanted to take pictures with my phone and I told him to recorded video instead, I started the view almost half way through and have 12 minutes recorded! We were impressed! The weather wasnt bad either, we didnt melt! After the firework show Gavin Degraw was still on stage sitting there taking selfies and signing things for fans! We certainly joined in on that too! He didnt rush anybody, he took his time, asked names, took pictures, and carried on conversations. Again, the most down to earth artist ever! There is no reason anyone shouldnt be a fan! Thank you so much for coming to Okinawa and entertaining us, we all appreciate it!
