Play The Gap
Report & Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets
PlayTheGap is a FREE event that focuses on introducing youth & adults to a “Slice of Americana” through many educational programs and activities. “Slice of Americana” refers to a simpler time before IPhones & computers demanded so much attention, a time when chatting with a neighbor over a cup of coffee was all the entertainment that was needed. PlayTheGap is an exciting, safe event where people of all ages can unplug from their hectic schedules, learn some usable skills, and enjoy good music, good food, and some good, old fashioned fun.
There was free on-site camping and many people camped. There were a lot of vintage trailers, teardrops, tents and other RVs.
Music was played throughout the park. There were music work shops, concerts, jams, and contest. Along with that was square dancing were everyone had a chance to learn.
There were many arts and craft vendors. Saturday was the big day for vending.
There was a lot of other fun thing too like, a Quilt Block Challenge, Classic Cars/Trucks CruZin’ Parade, Kid’s Activities, and Raffles.
