The Mountain Lion Hi-Fi external link stage featured a "Reggae Rootz Dancehall". In the early afternoon there were few dancers.

Hats worn by the attendees varied from the casual backwards baseball "California Republic" hat to a fancy hat more commonly seen at a cotillion.

Several booths had spinners. Some gave out free promotional prizes, others, such as here, gave out discounts or free unicorns.
