This event is always a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to taste a variety of wines as well as visit the local businesses. The event is rain or shine, and if it rains, I look forward to using my new “Paris themed” umbrella! I hope to see you there.

The Oakhurst Arts & Music Festival has the word music in the title for a reason- the music is awesome! The bands donate their time and talents for the community. As promised, here are some photos from the musical line up. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to take any photos before noon, so I missed a couple of them. Our friend and event photographer Bill Mahan shared some of his with me as well. I would like to mention that The Stephen Wood Ensemble, Sue Witty and Olde Dog also performed. When I get some photos of them, I will be sure to add them.
