visitors spread out blankets, sat at picnic tables or the fold-up chairs they brought from home, or strolled the Ramona Outdoor Community Center listening to music, attending workshops, enjoying the perfect weather, and talking with authentic re-enactors in the Old West Encampment.

Children played, adults talked and enjoyed the music, bands played, and the re-enactors brought guests back in time.

The festival continues this evening with Chris Stuart and Janet Beazley from 6:35 to 7:25, Hot Club of Cowtown from 7:30 to 9, and fireside talks and jams from 9 to midnight.

Sunday activities will start with the Taildraggers at 11 a.m. and end with Chris Clarke & Plow from 6:10 to 7 p.m.

Parking is free as is a walk through the Old West Encampment with Civil War re-enactors, Cowboy Camp, Saloon, Chuck Wagon, Pioneer Family, and the Mountain Man camp.

Tickets are available at the gate and online. Saturday tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children. Tickets on Sunday are $10 for adults
