What a gorgeous day in the sunshine last Saturday was! One of the many, many things I am going to miss about Asheville is the abundance of festivals and events; seems like every weekend there is something new and exciting going on that celebrates creativity and draws in a fun crowd.
Montford Fest was a free street affair of all day music (ranging from blue grass to reggae!), dancing, hula hooping, arts and craft vendors and delicious homemade food.
Snake Oil Medicine Show was one of my favorite bands that played--they were very reggae meets bluegrass meets rockabilly. Very dancable! Good stuff!
But, I finally got to meet the MelMackPink: Asheville's best hooper! She performs downtown on Tuesday nights in Pritchard Park, starting in June. You can check her out at http://www.ashevillehoops.com/ She's great!
