Katy Perry is everywhere!

The last time I checked, there was only one Katy Perry, and she does not have any twin sisters. I could have been fooled last night at Summerfest after seeing dozens and dozens of Katy Perry look-alikes. One Katty Perry was testing her upper body strength at the Marine station while another was swinging her hips inside of a hula hoop at the OnMilwaukee.com tent. Still, nothing caught my eyes more than the Katy Perry fans (not dressed like the artist) who built a 72-piece giant Jenga set taller than themselves, and me for that matter.  If I didn't see it for myself, I would not have believed it would be possible.

Although the Perry mania was in full force, I couldn't help but be captivated by the group of drummers drumming relentlessly on five-gallon buckets. The group reminded me of a top-notch marching band with their speedy and difficult routine combined with drum stick aerials. If you thought that a five-gallon bucket could not be an appealing instrument, think again. These men braved the heat for no fewer than four straight hours (the entire time I was there). I guess my parents were wrong all those years to yell at me for using their pots and pans as a drum set.
