The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, Colorado has become one of my family’s favorite annual excursions in recent years. Having attended 3 festivals to date, we’ve started to become familiar with festival rituals, ……… tarp lines, river cooling, the lively dance area near the stage, etc. However, even with 3 festivals under our belt, we’re still newbies as we visit with other festivarians and hear their veteran stories. Many have been coming through all 25 years of the festival. They’re full of helpful tips and easily share many wonderful recollections of past festivals. It’s a fun time filled with great music and lots of friendly folks…….easy to see why people keep coming back year after year.
Days are often very hot so the St. Vrain river, which runs through the property is an inviting respite from the heat.
But first and foremost, there’s music, lots of music ……….
