Hundreds of music fans gathered Saturday in Auburn’s Regional Park to celebrate the music of the Grateful Dead, dance and just have a good time at the fourth annual Auburn Recreation District’s Ain’t Necessarily Dead Music Festival. Never mind temperatures approaching the century mark, fans sat in the shade of trees on the hill finding ways to beat the heat and enjoy the music at the free event. The fun began at noon and lasted until 10 p.m.
Along with the music a craft beer garden serving local beers, a food court, kid zone and craft vendors were available while the music continued all day on two stages. Tie-dye clothing was the attire of the day and strangers soon became best friends throughout the day.
