A few days before the weekend of the Ithaca Reggae Festival at Stewart Park, I checked the weather forecast from the seat of my bus. Seeing its projections brought my palms to a light, cold sweat. Warning signs of ear-splitting thunderstorms and torrential rain forced me to pray that taking the three-and-a-half-hour drive upstate for the festival was worth it.
Fortunately, on the day of Ithaca Reggae Fest, the threat of thunderstorms and rain disappeared. The sky was baby blue and filled with plush clouds. And to top it all off, I was listening to fantastic live music beside the beautiful waves of Cayuga Lake in Stewart Park. Attending the Ithaca Reggae Fest is an experience that is welcoming, groovy and funky. Be sure to mark
