Nelson County, VA
An 87° high and sunny skies on Sunday is all that was needed to round out a perfect weekend of festivals and activities across Nelson County. The annual Rockfish Valley Foundation Kite Festival drew a big crowd for the kites!

Photo By Paul Purpura : Earlier in the weekend on Saturday morning it was the annual Piney River Mini Triathlon. The even't has been going on for several years now. It's coordinated by the Nelson Parks & Recreation Department.

Photo By Paul Purpura : If none of the other stuff going on grabbed your fancy, then maybe mud bogging did! Rockfish Valley Volunteer Fire Department held that even over the weekend as well. The dirty event always draws a big crowd.

The bog benefits Relay for Life and if you missed this past Saturday’s event, you have lots more chances in the coming months.
