After a Friday night of winds exceeding 50 MPH, Saturday ended up being sunny and quiet for the Mardi Gras Madness Fun Run held this past Saturday afternoon at Devils Playground. That’s just across the way from Devils Backbone Brewing in Roseland. Bleu Ridge Life Magazine is a regular sponsor of the events there, and BRLM Publisher Yvette Stafford participates in the races too.
