Bookmark and Share

Guthrie was buzzing this past weekend! I haven’t heard any attendance numbers yet. The Bluegrass festival was packed Friday night, it was a bit chilly but that didn’t seem to deter anyone from attending.

I spent quite a bit of time downtown this weekend and everyone was having a great time at the Guthrie Escape… and then there were ZOMBIES!! Zombie bole 5K is a cool juxtaposition to the culture found at the Guthrie Escape. The late night crowd found fun and fear at Guthrie Haunts Scaregrounds. People from all over the State were here having fun!  A big thanks to all of the festival committees and volunteers for their hard work.
