Blues rocker Anthony Gomes was the headliner Saturday night, July 26, at the Prairie Dog Blues Festival. He was a master of the guitar whose band lit up the stage on a warm and hazy night in Prairie du Chien. Gomes has played the festival before and, in this second appearance on the main stage, he did not disappoint his audience. In its 17th year on St. Feriole Island, the Blues Fest welcomed an estimated 4,000 people on Saturday, and another couple thousand on Friday evening. For more photos of the festival, visit the Courier Press on Facebook. (Photos by Correne Martin)
