Blueberries festivals nearby

For weeks we have been raving about how great a blueberry season we are having...the bushes on the hiking trails are loaded with them and two annual festivals coming up over the next two weekends celebrate their yumminess.

This Saturday, August 7th is the 4th Annual Greenfield Blueberry Jamboree.  Greenfield claims to be the "Home of the High Bush Blueberry Bush" and there will be horse drawn hay rides, pie eating contests, crafters, vendors, and much much more!

The following Saturday, August 14th is the 8th Annual Richmond Blueberry Fiddle Festival held at the county fairgrounds in Swanzey.  There will be music, contra-dancing, antique car show, auction, and of course a blueberry dessert bake-off :)
