There’s a lot of fun activities this weekend, but the biggest and most exciting has got to be the annual Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival! This is a perfect opportunity to explore the county’s history and tour the covered bridges of Union County. Couple that with some great bluegrass music and you’ve got the makings of a great local festival.
