On September 25-26, 2010, Grayson Highlands State Park in Mouth of Wilson, VA will host the annual Grayson Highlands Fall Festival that celebrates Virginia’s unique, traditional mountain heritage. The sound of bluegrass/old time music, the smell of sorghum molasses and barbequed chicken and a touch of fall in the air are only the beginning of what you can expect from this festival. Many craft demonstrations are available for visitors to get a taste of what life was like for the pioneers who settled in the mountains of Southwest VA.
The Grayson Highlands Fall Festival is sponsored by the Rugby Rescue Squad and Ladies Auxiliary. There is a $6 per vehicle fee for parking. The all weekend event is open from 10 AM – 6 PM in the picnic area of the park. The wild pony sale, sponsored by the Wilburn Ridge Pony Association, will take place at 2 pm on Saturday.
And for a special treat, the maple leaves have just started to show their colors.
