The music was even hotter than the temperature at Joseph City Park Saturday during the 16th annual Bronze Blues and Brews festival, where a couple thousand people had a wonderful time. In addition to music, the uniquely Joseph event featured a grassy dance floor, a playground with sprinkler, a savory assortment of food, plentiful brews and a display of bronzes that seemed to be dancing, too.
