Celebrating John Lennon's 70th birthday at the Wisconsin Union with fireworks and Joan Baez

Happy Birthday, John Lennon!Our Friday night was Saturday morning in England, where it was already John Lennon's 70th birthday.

Celebrating John Lennon's Birthday with FireworksWe celebrated with the Joan Baez concert in the Union Theater and a warmup fireworks display on the Union Terrace, courtesy of the UW Homecoming festivities. Baez, who turns 70 in January, got a loud standing ovation. She sang "Imagine" as her second encore on Lennon's 70th birthday Friday night. We loved the concert, well worth the 1-mile hike each way because it was impossible to park anywhere near the campus. And the fireworks weren't bad either.
