Nelson County, Virginia
The first half of the Memorial Weekend started off with low clouds and very little sunshine. If you were on the mountain Saturday, a lot of the morning and early afternoon was spent in the clouds. By mid-afternoon the clouds broke and the sun came out! Regardless of the weather, lots of activities took place Saturday with even more Sunday. The weather will feel a lot like summer Sunday and Monday with temps in the lower 90’s with a return of summertime humidity.
Sunday Wintergreen Performing Arts will hold their annual Festival of Wine And Food from noon until 5:30PM.
Later in the day, commemorating the true meaning for this holiday weekend, American Legion Post 17 and V.F.W. Post 7701 will hold a Memorial Day Remembrance in Lovingston at 3PM on the Veterans Memorial Field of Nelson County High School.
There’s also a long list of other activities going on Sunday.
-Wintergreen Winery continues their Wine Into Summer Celebration
-Bluegrass music at Humpback Rocks Mountain Farm on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
-Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton will have live music on the patio.
-The Jan Smith Trio will be playing at Devil’s Backbone Brewing in Roseland (at the intersection of 664 & 151)
Have a happy and safe remainder of the Memorial Holiday.
And let’s remember why this holiday is actually celebrated!
