My Favorite Things at Pickathon (Besides the Bands)

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Mon, Aug 6, 2012 at 11:44 AM

I had never been to Pickathon before and I usually hate music festivals, but yesterday I biked out to Pickathon and found it was wonderful, wonderful. The festival doesn't give out maps of the sprawling Pendarvis Farm venue ("It's an eco thing," explained a volunteer), so I spent my first hour at Pickathon happily wandering through the forest, looking for a stage and instead finding strange paper mache animals and a friendly dog named Freckles. Things only got better from there. Ned's got Pickathon music reporting covered, so here is my collection of my favorite non-music things from the festival.

Dog with an all-access pass.
