Taos Ski Valley, NM (Vocus) May 20, 2010
The Taos Ski Valley is kicking off its Second Annual Taos Mountain Music Festival Labor Day weekend with Gov’t Mule and Warren Haines. Big riffs, massive grooves, and expansive improvisations are the hallmarks of Gov't Mule's legendary live shows.
"Last year's Taos Mountain Music Festival was a fantastic event!" says Taos Ski Valley's Event Director Alejandro Blake. "This year we are stepping it up a level, and people are going to be blown away by the talented lineup slated to play the 2010 festival.”
"This is a family friendly festival, and this year we are going above and beyond to give visitors a full weekend of fun in Taos Ski Valley" adds Alyson Hyder, Executive Director of the Taos Ski Valley Chamber of Commerce.
This outdoor festival in Taos Ski Valley is situated on four acres with the beautiful backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and surrounded by national forest. The gates open at 10am and festival attendees are urged to arrive early and claim your spot for the day to enjoy a full day of music and entertainment. Once settled, festival-goers can enjoy "Strawberry Fair" the festival's marketplace. They can check out circus entertainers, shop for crafts from local artisans and sample food from top area vendors and restaurants. For just $5, kids can enter the "Kidzone" and go wild in the jumpy castle, get their faces painted, play games, even learn to play the drums. This Labor Day weekend Taos Ski Valley will host activities for all to enjoy all weekend long including "Movies in the Mountains", guided hikes to Wheeler Peak (the highest Peak in New Mexico) and live bands in bars surrounding the festival grounds.
