Bear Festival Wrapup

Release Date: Apr 19 2015

Whoooee!!!  What a great weekend we had. The weather was interesting. We picked, grinned and sang, dawn to dusk. The Mainstage performers were fabulous. The Marketplace artists lined the square with handcrafted treasures, some even demonstrated how they were made. Luthiers Row featuried the most beautiful handmade musical instruments. After a short break to rest up, let's do it again next year!!!
