Harmony Fest

An annual event in downtown Three Rivers on the Sunday before Labor Day is Harmony Fest.  Main Street is closed off for a block with musicians at the south end and vendors' tents down both sides of the street to the north with food, crafts, and displays of local projects.  The middle of the street has picnic tables and plenty of space for putting your lawn chair up close to the bands while still leaving room for a "dance floor."  

I wish I had done this shot as a video so that you could hear and dance to the Gratitude Steel Band as these folks were!  Leading off the jam were the Waseppi Bluegrass Band.  After Gratitude came the blues from the Vincent Hays Project.  You can catch the whole lineup and learn more about Harmony Fest at the Harmony Fest Website.
