Gourd Festival upcoming . . .

Recent surveys confirm that many people who like Celtic music also have a fondness for large, dried, inedible vegetables. So what could be more natural than for Riggity Jig to play at the Fifth Annual Spring Gourd Art Festival, May 19 and 20, in Knights Landing?

Greg and Mary Leiser host the festival every spring at Greg Leiser Farms, where you can admire and buy gourds and gourd art, and even learn how to make gourd art for yourself. Mary grew up in the Northeast listening to Cape Breton music, so we'll do our best to remind her of those days.

All-day parking is $2.00, but admission is free and you can bring a picnic lunch or pick up a meal from an on-site vendor.

All in all, sounds like gourd, clean fun, no? Plan to make a day of it!
