Once again, it didn’t rain on Bloomsday this year. And no one was more thankful for that than the 30-or-so on-course musicians who hauled their instruments outdoors lining the 12K concrete track to perform for the thousands of Bloomsday participants. (Read our music preview for this event here.) After the athletes voted on their favorite musical acts, the results for the 11th Annual Best Bloomsday Entertainer contest are as follows:

First Place, Tori Whitten — A country/pop singer winning the award for the second year in a row. She takes home $500.

Second Place, The Nixon Rodeo — The hard rock band, placed at the bottom of Doomsday Hill, took second once more. They win $300.

Third Place, Angela Marie Project — The rock/pop act earned $200 for their contribution to the event.

All of the Top 3 finalists were situated toward the middle of the course. Be sure to pick up your copy of the 2014 Bloomsday results booklet on Inlander stands for one more week.
