Father’s Day weekend … what to do?!? Bring dad down to the National Road Chainsaw Carving Festival and let him get his power-tool fix!
The carver’s arrive on Tuesday at the Addison Community Park to fire up their blades and start creating phenomenally detailed sculpture that is ready for auction on Saturday afternoon. The public is welcome to peruse the grounds and enjoy conversation with the artists, carving demonstrations, and food booths. On Friday night be entertained by our hometown parade and an awesome fireworks display by Addison VFD and Little Big Shots. Saturday afternoon brings the Silent Auction winner announcement, raffle drawing, and the carving auction. The net proceeds from this event benefit the Somerset County Blind Center. Thank you Confluence Lions Club!
The Bandits are back! And there is frost on the grass and wood smoke in the air! Yay! Fall has arrived!
Can you tell this is my favorite time of year? It is SO beautiful and peaceful on the mountain when Mother Nature begins preparing for her yearly nap. A great time to wander the State Parks and get a glimpse of the geology and fauna that are usually hidden behind all the green of the forest floor during the Spring and Summer. Or take a drive on the quiet back roads of the beautiful Southern Laurel Highlands and Garrett County, Maryland, and bring your binoculars to get a glimpse of incredible variety of birds you can spy when the leaves begin to fall.
We have our Free for Vets campaign going full blast on our Facebook page, and our Thanksgiving Special is up and booking out quickly - but three rooms are still available. This is a great time of year to take advantage of our Mid-week Special and our Work-Away-Your-Stay program, so give us a call and come visit!
We'll put the cider on for you...
