Blythe Bluegrass

Blythe, CA 

I now have to get caught up on my blog posting. So we’re traveling backwards in time.

We had a fantastic time at the Bluegrass Festival. We found three bands that we absolutely loved. The others were good and we enjoyed every group.


I don’t know how many people were in attendance but there were a lot of us and the vast majority brought their RV’s with them.



They had two stages set up and the bands played both sides. Can you find us in this picture? This picture was taken by The Bluegrass Brethren and we are somewhere in there. I can’t find us either and I know we were there.



There were also a few vendors and a few food stands but their prices were pretty steep. Jim bought me a small bag of kettle corn which was $5 and he bought himself a waffle ice cream cone and that was $6.50. That was the end of our purchases. Thank goodness our rig was not too far so we could go have lunch at home.

bluegrass5We went to the festival with eight other rigs from our RV Park in Apache Junction. We were able to park together and the festival folks delivered a fire stove for us. They are made out of old washing machines. They also deliver the free firewood to your site.

We definitely had a good time and we are looking forward to more bluegrass next year.

After five days in Blythe it was time for us to go back down to Yuma for more dental work for Jim.


  1. Nope. I didn't see you in the picture either. I may not have known where you were sitting but I know what you look like!

  2. Is it possible to listen to a banjo and not smile?

  3. One of the very few things Joe and I do not have in common. I love Blue Grass, he doesn't. Looking forward to your next blog. (always do)

  4. That's pretty neat about the free fire wood and stove.

  5. It as good to see you again. I too am looking forward to seeing you again in Mesa.

  6. Looks like a great time with nice weather. We're slowly moving towards AZ and have been enjoying the warm weather.

  7. Sounds like something I would have really enjoyed - maybe next year.

  8. I think I saw Jim's truck. Coming from a small town in the Adirondack Mts of New York, I remember family gatherings where a lot of great uncles would play and one would call square dances. Love Blue grass music.

  9. Was that Kettle Corn gold plated? Yikes!!!

  10. That place souds "right civilized", bringing a fireplace and firewood to your site! I love bluegrass, but mostly the old fashioned acoustical kind as opposed to all those electrified instruments.

  11. Now that sounds like another fine time with a whole bunch oif friends.

  12. You took 8 is some group. Glad y'all had a wonderful time!

  13. I wonder where the bluegrass festival is held in Blythe!


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
