#39;t be a problem, with a variety of food choices from local and regional vendors. There will be top-notch bluegrass and a bit of gospel music on stage throughout the day, ranging from true traditional to more-current styles, but all mountain-grown, through and through. Keeping the old skills alive, the regional artisans will be exhbiting their work as well as demonstrating their mastery of heritage skills such as woodworking, blacksmithing, folk pottery, textile crafts, and many others. The outdoor field events will give you more adventurous visitors a chance to see how you would fare in the mountains of old, with physical and mental challenges from the past: brute-strength and endurance contests like wood-chopping and log-sawing, skill and speed trials like archery and greased-pig chases, and simple schoolyard fun like three-legged relays and sack races.
