So now my family and me we’re back home after two great days at the Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Festival in Sevierville. All of us are really tired but everybody had so much fun, we just can’t stop talking about everything. And just when you think you heard about everything that was there, somebody says, “Hey, did you see?” and then they talk about something you didn’t even know existed at the festival!!!
Yesterday, I put a picture up of Bloomie the Pig with Missy Bear (I just love, love, love that pig!!!). I’m putting the picture up with this blog because this time I want to talk about other people in the picture that probably you didn’t even notice when you read my blog yesterday.
If you look behind Bloomie and Missy, you see a blue tent with people under it, and the people are people my Uncle Bob knows from the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce (because my Uncle Bob has his own business now and plus he’s a member of that place)! Anyway, here’s some better pictures of the people that were under the blue tent.
The three people working at the Event Information tent when me and Missy Bear and Uncle Bob walked over were Carroll McMahan (He’s the SCOC Special Projects Facilitator) and Thomas D. Taylor (He’s a author and a member of the Chamber that volunteered to help) and Phil Wood (He’s one of the two Information Specialist. The other one is David Stanfill and he was working in another part of the festival.).
That is not my Aunt Sissy in the picture. They were just helping this lady that was having fun at Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass that was in line ahead of us.
At the tent, they were selling t-shirts and Uncle Bob said they were selling like hotcakes. I don’t know how fast hotcakes sell but I think they probably sell really fast because t-shirts were flying off that table when we were there, and I don’t mean the wind was blowing them away! They even ran out of some sizes that’s how fast they were selling!
Also they had newspaper handouts with all the information on things going on at Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass that you could get at their tent, and another handout that had the bands and musicians playing on the different stages and at what time so you didn’t miss someone you really wanted to listen to and dance to and watch playing (that’s how come my Uncle Bob and me knew exactly what time Kirk Fleta was playing on the Hard Rock Café stage). In case you don’t remember what Kirk Fleta looks like, here’s a picture of him with Missy Bear again.
But getting back on topic of the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce Event Information Tent, I took a picture of the people from the one side so you can see the beginning of all the vendors that had tents up for selling their arts and crafts.
You can tell from the beginning spot of the vendor tents that it was packed (and this picture got taken early on Day Two so there were even way more people there than you can imagine. Probably way more than anyone could count even if they were the fastest counter in the world.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that the people that made this festival did a excellent job because everybody in my family just can’t stop talking about how much fun the Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Festival was. If you didn’t go there this year, you need to put it on your calendar and on your bucket list that next year, you are definitely going to Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass in Sevierville. I don’t know exactly when it’s going to happen, but it’s for sure happening in May because that’s when it always happened all the other years.
