An Asheville Weekend: Of Mountains, Music, and Segways

Moving way from hard news and data on a Friday is a good thing to do, so let's look at a couple of weekend fling things in the region.

The 13th Bluff Mountain Music Festival
The Asheville Citizen Times has an overview published online today. Hosted in the Town of Hot Springs, the initial inspiration was to prevent logging on Bluff Mountain, the backdrop to this Madison County resort mecca. (Yes, there really are hot springs in Hot Springs).

As time has passed, the festival has morphed from something that had an eco-focus, to a celebration of the arts, mountain life, and traditional music. The event is sponsored by The Madison County Arts Council, and a history of "Bluff" is available from the festival homepage, which includes performers, photos, and scehdule.

The event is free, and everyone should experience at least one Bluff Festival.

The Arboretum: Segways for Father's Day
The NC Arboretum, will host a special adventure on Sunday June 15, from 10 AM until 2 PM. Reservations are required. The full details of cost, age restrictions and so forth are here, from The Outdoors section of the Citizen Times.

In actual fact, the two-wheeled, stand up, Segway Personal Transporters as they are officially known, are available every day at The Arboretum. It's just a nice unique outing to mention in deference to all fathers, and maybe a memorable surprise. Have fun!
