From all accounts, FloydFest 2008 will rank as the most successful weekend of music, crafts and fun in the event’s short history. Organizers estimate a record 12,000 plus attended over the four days, the weather stayed dry, the Park Rangers stayed — for the most part — out of sight and the weekend was — as this year’s theme promised — a true family affair.

Don Johnson, the area landscape photographer who covered the event for The Floyd Press because I had a previous commitment, reports the festival this year was an outstanding success. His photos and story will be in Thursday’s paper (the photo above is one I took from a previous year).

FloydFest has become an important part of the area’s summer entertainment schedule and brings a lot of attention to the Floyd and the surrounding region. Our congratulations to Erika, Kris and the crew at Across the Way Productions.
