I have never made it to the Smith River Festival since I’ve been here. There is just so much going on this particular weekend. It looks like so much fun. There is a 5K mud run, a rubber ducky race, a boat race, tube rentals, a beer garden, and, this year, an angling pond.
Our big conflict is the mid-atlantic beer festival held in Roanoke on the same weekend, MicroFestivus. For $40 (if you buy your tickets early), you get admission to the event, an event pint glass, and forty tastings.
