Hardly Strictly Bluegrass: Merle Haggard Rocks! (Slideshow)

Posted By on Mon, Oct 3, 2011 at 10:00 AM

I'm not one for festivals of any sort -- or any event that requires sharing a Porta-Potty with 5,000 other people for the day.

Unless of course, Merle Haggard is performing.

Add in Gillian Welch, Broken Social Scene, and some warm sunshine, and I'm there -- hand sanitizer and all. If you missed the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival this weekend, we are here to tell you ... you missed out! Allow us to give you our take on the weekend music orgy and an up-close look at what we saw:

  • 24th Annual Autumn Moon Festival
    Crowds gathered September 6-7 for the 24th Annual Autumn Moon Festival in Chinatown. Visitors enjoyed arts, crafts, cultural exhibits, food and a dog fashion show. Photographs by Dhoryan Rizo.
  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
