This looks fun: Snowshoes’s FreeFall Festival
A weekend (sans kids) of live music, yoga and enjoying the beautiful outdoors of Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia sounds pretty darn heavenly. Just a few hours drive from the DC area, attendees can see headliners Michael Franti with Spearhead and Slightly Stoopid, G. Love and the Special Sauce, as well as many other musical acts.
The musical stages provide guests with 180-degree sunset and fall foliage views, guaranteed to deliver dramatic evening and daytime backdrops to the festivities.
There is also a special group yoga session with Franti playing an acoustic set, while yogis lead the poses, as well as other opportunities for yoga and wellness/fitness activities.
Along with the concerts and yoga-ing, the FreeFall weekend event will bring downhill and cross-country mountain bike races, a mountaintop brew fest celebration with a vast assortment of the nation’s finest craft beers and local BBQ, a Dock Dogs competition, a mountain bike movie premiere and a Saturday night fireworks display above the resort’s village. Guests can also participate in the Lifestyle Camp, which includes outdoor adventure activities and sporting events.
The 2014 FreeFall Festival is open to the public, and will be the perfect weekend to take in the fall colors in West Virginia’s beautiful mountains.
Mountain views, live music, yoga and beer. This sounds like my own personal paradise. Call the grandparents to take the kids and get your tickets!
