Lawn chairs filled the intersection of Reid Avenue and Third Street Saturday afternoon as guests poured into downtown Port St. Joe for the seventeenth annual Blues on Reid Music Festival.
Some listeners even spilled out into the parking lots in surrounding areas, hoping to catch some of the festival’s curated sets while enjoying the sunny springtime weather.
The festival featured five blues artists from around the South, including Port St. Joe locals LoRu, Panama City’s Sticky Tea, Quincy natives The Ben Flournoy Trio, Memphis-based Ben Prestage and another Memphis act, Brandon Santini.
Vendors from around the area traveled to Port St. Joe to sell their goods or offer refreshments to visitors.
The event, which was free, is hosted annually by the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce.
