Best bet: Spring Mountain Festival

Friday, May 20, 2011
Open Range Bluegrass

The annual Spring Mountain Festival will feature two days of music, dancing and crafters Saturday and Sunday. The festival, held in Arcadia Valley near Ironton, Mo., will include bluegrass, country and gospel music along with square dancing and cloggers. Vendors will sell arts and crafts and set up booths to show quilting, take vintage photographs, send people on buggy rides and miniature train rides for children. Open Range Bluegrass (pictured) will play the weekend festival. The five-piece band plays traditional country and bluegrass as well as mournful American Folk music.
