|We have to ride a bus there from parking areas just to get in.|

|The place everyone keeps their eyes on The Watson Stage.|
|The activities are always fun and this year there was|
an awesome hummer !
|Each year Merle Fest has it's own sand statue built. It takes|
all weekend and always turns out to where you are amazed.
|Colors and "hippy" style is everywhere and we loved it!|
|Every vender brings their own touch to|
Merle Fest and makes it memorable.
"Should I get it?"
|This was the honey that is absolutely something else! It's whipped honey|
and there are so many different concoctions.
|This is one of the huge tents where SOME of the vendors set up.|
|A craftsman made nice pens out of deer antlers and bullet shells.|
|Beautiful handmade jewelry made in front of you!|
|Brooke was looking wonderful in a|
skirt she had bought there :)
|I absolutely Loved these photos! They were the perfect|
caption for everyday life.
|A picture is worth a thousand words.|
|Time to leave your mark! The wall is a favorite at Merle Fest.|
|Got to love the instruments that show personality :)|
|Here's a perfect way to keep track of|
all your favorite tunes!
Some sleep away in the peaceful atmosphere of
music coming every which way....
|While others dance the day away! I loved |
watching this couple dance, they were that
couple you see that you can't tell which one is
leading because they are in perfect rhythm with
each other & the music
|I love this couple too. They had so much personality|
to them and looked like they stepped out of another time
just to see what Merle Fest was all about. :)
|Then my own siblings were out there|
giving it a shot.
|They were cute in their cowboy hats :)|
|It's the little things that make Merle Fest so interesting.|
|The story behind this one? Well this is the|
wooden frogs and he was acting like he was
the one making the noise...I had to capture the moment.
|Addison and Andrew having fun with|
Victor...loving his little smile!
|Its always a good time hanging out with good friends.|
|Inside one of the other tents playing music...so much talent here!|
|Tons of people are in all day but late the front lawn really gets full with|
exciting fans waiting to hear some amazing artists.
|More people are awaiting for the night time festivities to begin!|
|Bending Backwards for Merle Fest!!!|
|And then night time began and that is a completely different|
experience for those who attend... but one you wouldn't pass up!
|Anna, Eli, and Addison joining in a line dance :)|

|The Doc Watson Stage in all its greatness!|
