  • keno · I was working at PrimmValley for about 5 yrs, '03 - '08, and I went to a Reggae concert the last weekend in august '04 and '05. Iliked going to DelMar the last weekend in August because it was festive and a party. Great barbecue sandwichs, beer tents, great music, weed everywhere - people would just light one up and pass it on around into the crowd, that was GREAT! Even if you hadnt toked for several years and kind of grew away from it - you were bound to get into the spirit of being 22 again at that festival. The crowd was abuzz but mellow-chillin. Everybody had a rythm in sync. The colors at DelMar just seem to explode in front of you there. The horses on the stretce in front of the stands seem like they're so much closer than at other tracks. DelMar is really special! · 634 days ago ·
