The final day of the 2017 Okeechobee Music Festival dawned cool and breezy with many exhausted music fans passed out all about the festival site. But another day of fantastic music from many genres got people motivated early despite their exhaustion. Even after 4 days of non-stop partying many committed festival goers wore fresh new costumes and sported freshly made totems.

Day 3 of the Okeechobee Music Festival dawned chilly and breezy. Nonstop partying began taking its toll on festival goers and many took advantage of the cooler temperatures to get some actual sleep. But as high noon approached both Aquachobee beach and center Chobeewobee began to bustle with life again. The cool morning gave way to a sunny windblown day that created havoc in the camping areas, turning some tents into flying kites and stirring a virtual dust storm across the venues.

Just as many Okeechobee festival-goers were returning to their campsites from a long night of EDM dance trance, the sunlit campgrounds in a bright golden burst. Luckily for daytime sleepers, a front moved in quickly covering the sun with a blanket of gray. For a short time, the threatening sky looked like it might break into stormy showers, but soon the front pushed through leaving a pleasant but blustery day in its wake. As a few tents took flight and others were being nailed down by surprised campers, the windy conditions persisted.

The chaos of modern life is left behind as you turn off the bustling 95 freeway that runs along nearly the entire East Coast and onto the old highway 714. Heading West along the rural road, freeway civilization gives way to one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas in South Florida. The ride into the Okeechobee Music Festival is a spectacular one, with thick green vegetation on all sides. Florida oak trees with hanging Spanish moss blowing in the warm tropical wind and swaying palm trees line the roadway growing ever denser as the road narrows.
