I get nothing but chills whenever I reminisce on my Memorial Day Weekends spent at the San Antonino Recreation Area in Bradley, CA for Do Lab's Lightening in a Bottle.

There is something unexplainable about Lightening in a Bottle, something I have struggled to put into words for years now. The best way I could describe the amazing festival, is how one of the founders DeDe Flemmings, put it into words at my first adventure to the unique festival.
