IMPERIAL — Americana was out in force at this year's first concert of the California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta on opening day Friday.
Taking the stage among lots of denim, leather, Harley-Davidsons and T-shirts with logos from oil companies, racing cars and football teams were John Kay and Steppenwolf.
The concert drew people of all ages, including the children of El Centro resident Maria Castellanos — Ruby, Crystal and Julio.
Crystal, 16, said she was looking forward to hearing Steppenwolf play "Born to be Wild."
"It's been played on many movies," she said.
Ruby, 14, said the youngsters were at the concert at the urging of their mother.
"We grew up listening to this kind of music," she said.
All of the Castellanos children have been to other concerts at the fair and elsewhere, including to performances by Antonio Aguilar, Los Malos and Journey.
