What's Trending Aug 12 2019: 20,000 plus see The Luker, Moncton runner sets PanAm record, Giant Foam Cowboy Hats saturate all levels of government


-Thanks for coming out to the Luke Bryan Show at the Hill on Saturday! The Times & Transcript says around 20,000 people were at the showwe heard ticket sales were higher ;) but the weather might've kept some folks away. ICYMI: We had thunderstorms roll through and potential dangerous conditions where people in line were taken back to the park and ride drop off until the weather cleared. We started late but things got back on time for the main event.
A bunch of photos and videos are on our social media and I'll put everything into one big blog post if you want to check it out.
