Thank you to everyone who showed up for the 3rd Annual Saddleback Mountain Bluegrass Festival. The line up of talent was amazing. The Red Stick Ramblers shook the Base Lodge on Friday with their Cajun sounds. Sam Bush closed the show on Saturday to a roaring crowd. A special thank you to our sponsors and the many volunteers who made this event possible.
