Elkhart Jazz Festival kicks off summer


Friday marked the official start to summer.And it sure felt like it. Plenty of people in Michiana enjoyed the warm temperatures Friday and are expected to do so throughout the weekend.

Michiana resident Patty Thurman said, "It's wonderful to be out here on the first day of summer, doing homework, watching the river and listening to the wafting of the jazz music at the same time."

The jazz music was coming from the Elkhart Jazz Festival. The festival started Friday with a Mardi Gras themed parade traveling through downtown.

People from all over the country attend this unique event in Michiana. San Antonio, Texas resident George Terry has been attending the festival for over twenty years. His reason for coming back is simple.

"The music obviously and the great performers. It isn't just the music but the people who play the music."

At one point, festival goers were taken inside the Lerner because of the storms. The festival runs through Sunday rain or shine.
