Tips on What to Bring for a Day Trip
If you're going to be visiting us for the festival but not camping there are still some things you might want to bring with you . . .
- Chairs - preferably low back so as not to block the view of those behind you
- Sunscreen - while we do have a covered seating area there is still plenty of good ole Virginia sunshine up on that mountain!
- Layers of clothing for warm days and cool nights
- Sweater / Jacket - once the sun goes down it can get a little cool
- Umbrella / Rain Gear - we have been known to get a small shower every now and then
- Insect Repellant
- Wet wipes for the little ones (and sometimes the big ones)
- Instruments - you might want to wander up to one of the camp sites, meet some new friends and do some pickin'!
