Thousands of die-hard fans packed Rainbow Lagoon Park on Saturday and Sunday for the 29th Annual Long Beach Blues Festival. Blues lovers were treated to performances by legends Chuck Berry, Taj Mahal, Pinetop Perkins, and other headliners on the main stage, while local favorites Johnny Mastro & The Mama's Boys, The Average Johnsons and The Robert Francis Band and more kept the vibe alive on the second stage.
