33 years ago, the ‘circus’ was back on the 'eve of' and 'day of' April Fools in Portland, Maine. The Grateful Dead returned to the Cumberland County Civic Center for the fifth time and and their first two-night stand.
Deadheads came together for a candle-light vigil on Monument Square. We set up the PA on our patio overlooking the heart of the city. The sweet, magical music Jerry had given us for 30 years was filling the air under a bright, beautiful moon.
