Wintergreen Performing Arts officially kicked of their 2009 season Wednesday night on the mountain at Wintergreen Resort  in the Evans Center. This year’s theme is Appalachian Roots: A Cultural Kaleidoscope and events run from July 6 to Aug. 2. Each week of the month-long festival features a part of the Appalachian Trail. Our Paul Purpura was on hand to grab these shots from the opening night which included a meet and greet reception as well.
“This year, festival-goers will find everything from theater, dance and film events to visual art exhibitions, cooking classes and wine tastings. There will even be a 5K Run/Walk event festival planners are calling “Appalachian Routes,” says Larry.
