Redbud Festival

Good, Random, Fun (Including Barns and Critters)

The Good: A community festival brings people together and provides entertainment and learning opportunities.  Saturday was a beautiful day for the annual festival in Browntown, Virginia.

The Random: Here are some scenes in this charming rural community with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The pink flowering trees are "eastern redbuds." 

The Fun: The festival provides plenty of entertainment including music, face painting, a petting zoo, and an antique car show.
