If you find yourself driving around Grapeland you’ll see signs all over the place for a bluegrass festival.
It’s the 40th Annual Labor Day Bluegrass Festival at Salmon Lake Park.
Floyd Salmon and his wife Fannie created the festival back in 1976 and for the past 40 years, people come from all over to do a little picking and grinning.
And even in the Salmon’s old age they still work hard to make the festival great.
“Floyd and Fannie Salmon, this was their dream and we’re just trying to keep it going,” said Colee Biller/Littlefield, Festival Manager. “You wouldn’t know it by looking at Mr. Salmon that it’s hard to keep all this up but he’s done a mighty fine job at keeping it all together and we’re just trying to help him.”
With it being the 40th year, members plan to make this special for the Salmons.
The festival will be September 1st through the 4th.
