A beautiful Saturday for most of the Blue Ridge Oyster Festival held on the grounds at Devils Backbone Brewing this past weekend. Though it was all about the oysters, there was music, wine, and, of course, beer! The event partially benefitted The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Big Brothers & Big Sisters of The Central Blue Ridge.

People covered the lawn at Devils Backbone to enjoy oysters, music, wine and beer!
And several bands played throughout the day including, Tara Mills & Strings, William Walter & Tucker Rogers, Adrian Duke, & Jackass Flats
Rain did move in late in the day, but not before people enjoyed plenty of great music, food and fun!
This is the 2nd year the Blue Ridge Oyster Festival has been held.
For once, Hobojac musical duo Jacob Allen and John Howard were not in front of the crowd but got the chance to enjoy the music and the day of fun!
See you at the 2013 festival!
