Some are already calling it the best blues festival ever. There was something on tap for everyone – from the blues fanatic to food lovers to outdoor enthusiasts. Early birds got the opportunity to salute Anson Funderburgh, who is the only performer to grace the KBBF stage all 32 years. Activities varied from barbecue contests to street musicians and on to the headline performances. Sports and outdoor activities also got in on the act this year with the traditional Flour Power 5K Run and the Tour da'Delta making its KBBF debut. There were plenty of souvenirs to go round. More KBBF coverage coming online and Friday's Helena World.
