West Jefferson’s Camping Festival
Every last weekend of July, the High Country Bus Festival is being held. Since summer days are usually so hot, this is a great event to take advantage of the cool breeze high up in the mountains. Having said that, it can get more cold at night time, so warm garments are also absolutely essential! This event is more about gathering old and new friends together to embrace the spirit of camaraderie and just to have a fun and memorable weekend through camping in the outdoors. This camping event is generally held right at the New River in Crumpler, North Carolina.
The camping is situated just right along the riverbank. However, there are also a lot of camping essentials to be seen like the usual tents, the trailers, and some RVs. True to the camping motif, no meals were given so you either have to learn how to magically produce food out of thin air or just basically load up some food basics and make meals over the standard flames from wood! During the night, some local bands like the Corduroy Commander will serenade and provide merriment to the people through music. The musical genres being played are more of rock music, folk songs, and country music.
Just inside the camping locations, there are a lot of sights to see and places to visit and linger about. What I’m talking about are the camp vendors that offer you a wide assortment of gifts and knick-knacks such as tie-dyed tee shirts, dreamcatchers and a lot of camping supplies.
Another is this thing called tubing down the river. With just a few bucks, you can plunge into the river in style with a big and yellow intertube. This enjoyable activity is more impressive if you are in a team of folks or with your good friends and loved ones. After that strenuous activity, a refreshing drink is usually served for a cheap price and you can just watch the magnificent view around the camping site. Cellular phone reception is pretty much bad in the camping spot so you can take a rest from the hustle and bustle of social networking and work and simply get pleasure from the company of your family and close friends.
The natural environment can also make you experience a tad more attached with Our mother earth! This camping activity is also a sure way to help your kids develop an engaging relationship with other people as the High Country Bus Festival is a kid-friendly event.
In closing, the High Country Bus Festival is very helpful for people who want to have a great time in the company of friends and loved ones.
