Smart Bets: Bluff Mountain festival

If indie-rock, hula-hoops, glow-sticks and sound systems don't figure into your ideal sort of festival, then the Bluff Mountain Festival might be more your speed. The annual music gathering is all about the region's best traditional old-time and bluegrass acts (including the Orpheus Supertones, pictured), ballad singers and cloggers, along with an evening square dance that runs until dark. "Bring the family and the lawn chairs to enjoy a day full of music under the shade trees," says a press release. The event takes place on Saturday, June 9, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Hot Springs Spa & Resort. And it's free.

    This festival is a great place to be if you like traditional old-time and bluegrass music. They also have a nice dance floor for anyone so inclined to flatfoot or whatever. The time shown here is wrong – it’s actually 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
