    i attended Bear’s Picnic over the weekend and had a great time! The music was excellent, the venue was wonderful, vendors were good and we were able to enjoy ourselves without any hassle. and even though it’s family-oriented if you didn’t want to be around kids you could camp in the general camping area – not the family camping area. A real good time!
