Indeed, forecasters are predicting virtually ideal weather for the day-long event in Emmaus Community Park, calling for highs of 71 degrees.
Expect all of the things that made the original Emmaus Bluegrass Festival great –one again there will be a wide variety of arts and crafts vendors, face painting and other fun things for the kid types to do – plus a whole lot more.
The Special Entertainment Commission sent out a “breaking news alert” on its Facebook page when Grumpy's Bar-B-Que signed on as one of the food vendors for this year’s event, causing a good deal of pre-event buzz.
Also new this year, according to the SEC Facebook page, is a Musikfest-like beer pavilion, made possible through the help of the Emmaus Main Street Partners who are bringing in their beer truck.
There is also a football event happening at the park on Saturday, which should add to the festival-like atmosphere.
Then, of course, there's the bluegrass. Here’s the final band schedule:
10 – 12 p.m. Big Valley Bluegrass
12 – 2 p.m. Blue Mountain Junction
2 – 4 p.m. Without a Paddle
4 – 6 p.m. Saucony Grass
6 – 8 p.m. Willow Creek
