Winter Jam is a national music tour, covering most of the nation. Last Saturday a couple of
friends and myself went to one of the tour stops in Cincinnati! We had the privilege of hearing
music from the likes of Kari Jobe, Group1Crew, Peter Furler, Building 429, Sanctus Real, and
many more. Winter Jam is a first-come, first-serve concert, so we had to show up really early to
get in line for tickets. We ended up getting in line a whole 4 hours before the doors opened!
While we waited, my friend Hope wanted to do a photo shoot, so we did and one of the many
hilarious photos from the "shoot" is below. We were, of course, hungry, and in need of food
when we arrived in line; so we left Jenilee and Julie (some of the adults that went with us) to fend
for themselves in line. Whilst the leaders were in line, we (all the youngens and one adult) went
running through the streets of downtown Cincinnati looking for food; did I mention this was all
during the St. Patrick's Day Festival? So after a long time of speeding through the green-clothed,
bagpipe, and kilt laden city; we found a Chipotle. While we were in Chipotle, waiting in line for
forty-five minutes, We saw and met the lead singer of Group1Crew along with the group's
drummer, and Kari Jobe eating; so I said "hi" and got a picture. Finally, after we got our food five
minutes before the doors opened, ate it as fast as we could, and had to throw the leftovers away;
we got in to the arena. The bands were amazing, and Skillet (the final band) kicked our faces in.
In an onslaught of running, waiting, and amazing music, we made some unforgettable memories;
life is short, live it well!
