This was one busy weekend across Nelson and adjoining counties. So let’s get right to it!
Our very busy NCL photographer Paul Purpura was all over the place getting these great shots.
Below is one of the many nature walks held by The Wintergreen Nature Foundation this past weekend as part of their Wildflower Symposium.
Below, Doug Coleman on the right, executive director of TWNF, takes a break on the porch with a Blue Heeler and one of the many folks that were at this weekend’s symposium.
Look for more pictures of this year’s symposium in the June issue of NCL!
Far away from Devil’s Knob just over the county line along 29 North at The Covesville Store, Rick and Sarah Ovenshire put on a real spread as they held The Covesville Music Festival and community celebration to bring groups of local people together to celebrate historic Covesville past & present. Rick and Sarah’s event also put a special emphasis on The Covesville Child Development Center Scholarship Fund. These guys know how to put on a show and lots of food, this is a great event every time they have it!
Back in Nelson folks had a great time this weekend over at Cardinal Point Winery where the The Guano Boys brought their mix of reggae, ska, calypso, and Afro-Caribbean funk to folks stopping in. Proceeds from the concert helped out Nelson County Almost Home Pet Adoption Center. Always enjoy going over to Cardinal. The Gormans can put on a great afternoon and make some awesome wine!
