Tap your booted toes, sing along with the bands and celebrate Father's Day at the Appalachian Trail Music Festival on June 19, 2016, at Children's Lake in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania -- sponsored by the good folks of Boiling Springs and the staff at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
Invest an afternoon and reap happy memories of a lakeside picnic with others who love the Appalachian Trail and dandy music. Come for a tune or two, or be there from noon until 7 PM for the whole shindig. Bring your own blankets, chairs and your best smiles.
You'll have plenty of time to take a hike before the Appalachian Trail Music Festival, or invest a few months of your life on a longer hike afterward.
There's no charge to attend ... but that doesn't mean it doesn't cost somebody a bunch of money to make you happy. Don't worry. You'll have the chance to pop the organizers a couple of bucks to show your gratitude.
Among the bands playing this year are: Mad Men, The Wild Hymns, Jack's Back, Rivers, RevDawg, Ric LeBlank, Val Woods and Not Quite Right. Sounds like fun.
