The Blue Ridge Parkway will Celebrate Heritage & Community this Saturday, August 6, at Waterrock Knob. The celebration begins at 10:00 a.m. running until 3:00 p.m. with ongoing craft demonstrations throughout the day as well as Cherokee dancers, Appalachian storytellers, old-time and bluegrass music, and clogging. The day will end with a naturalist lead hike through the knob.
Waterrock Knob, located at Milepost 451 on the Blue Ridge Parkway is about 21 miles from The Swag and a visit there tomorrow would be another great way for Swaggers to experience the history and heritage of the region.
