It has been an unforgettable summer and this weekend kept the momentum going into fall.
With the sounds of bluegrass music coming from the Village and a breathtaking art festival at Samâ€™s Woodsite, life in Mammoth keeps getting better and better.
Summer timeâ€”for most of usâ€”is the best time to kick back and enjoy the outdoor beauty and calm weather.
Autumn usually slows down, but not for us. Every weekend in September is jam-packed with activities and drinking opportunities.
The â€śbest summer everâ€ť campaign can easily continue into the best fall ever as shown by the good vibes of bluegrass and over 100 artists at the Labor Day Festival of Arts and Music showing a very diverse collection of fine art.
With that in mind, the creators of the festival hit the mark.
There was stained glass windows, hand-crafted wooden furniture, jewelry made of rock and metal, oil paintings of natural landscapes, wind chimes made from found and recycled materials, and even pieces of art made with leaves and other organic media.
I was impressed with the quality of the artwork and it was complemented with the sounds of Jeff Scroggins, Bill Evans, Chris Stuart and others.
If you attended, I probably danced with you.
If it was awkward, Iâ€™m sorry.
Beer is back in town with Mammoth Brewing Companyâ€™s annual Hop â€™nâ€™ Sage Festival. The festival takes place Saturday, Sept. 8, at Samâ€™s Woodsite. See you there. Ciao!
P.S. Itâ€™s also my birthday Tuesday, Sept. 11, so I hope to see out on the town. Come join me and some friends at one of the many watering holes we love visiting in Mammoth.
Iâ€™m not hard to find, and not picky about what shots you decide to have with me either. Just don't expect me to remember the entire night the next day.
