Grayson Highlands State Park: Fall Festival

14 Sep

The 2013 Festival will be held Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29 from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm

“Since 1976 the Rugby Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Department, Inc. and Grayson Highlands State Park have entertained tens of thousands of people with their live exhibits of Appalachian culture. Step back into a simple age when horses and mules ground cane into juice to be boiled into sorghum or molasses; when apple cider was the soft drink of the time; when fresh apples were cooked in a copper kettle over an open fire all day long to render apple butter; and when Saturday night was reserved for fiddling; and making music with the neighbors. Such was the lifestyle of the early Appalachian pioneers.”

If you are thinking of taking a long weekend to boulder at GHSP, you should aim for the weekend of the 28th and 29th. The Fall Festival is a lot of fun, and held at the Picnic Area of the park. Boulder at the Rock House and Olympus boulders and on rests between crushing your favorite problems you can get a cold drink and warm food while listening to live bluegrass…
