Fall Fest

Every year me, my family,occasionally my friends and Derek go to the "Fall Fest". It's about an hour away in Lancaster and each year it is so much fun. It's basically a giant field where everyone brings blankets and pillows to sit on all day and you sit and watch a few great country music artists play all day. It is VERY country; the field of people are mostly made up of people wearing cowboy boots and cowboy hats. It's full of beer and good food. Every year my main two priorities are a pulled pork sandwich and fried oreos. I've seen so many great country artists play here like, Little Big Town, Darryl Worley, Sarah Buxton, Gretchen Wilson, Chris Young, Jake Owen, Jerrod Niemann, The Band Perry, and many more. This year we got to see Bradley Gaskin, Randy Houser, Lauren Alaina, Steel Magnolia and RODNEY ATKINS! It was freezing cold out and sprinkling during the entire 6 hours but Derek and I snuggled underneath blankets and ate tons of food.    

 Don't you love how Derek and I wore our matching plaid shirts? Haha
My Mom and I, 3rd year to be here!
Lauren Alaina sang my favorite song by her, "Georgia Peaches"
The security let us through the gates to the very front at the end. I almost died when Rodney Atkins stepped directly in front of me! 

He sang some of my favorites "Cabin In the Woods", "If You're Going Through Hell", "Watchin You", and "Farmers Daughter." It was so nice being able to go home for the weekend and going to this Sunday before heading back to Philadelphia. I miss my siblings, my parents, my friends and Derek so so much. And despite the fact that I live in the city now, country music will always be my favorite and my way of life.
