A Childrens Activity Center has fun for youths while Blue Creek Productions offers a spread of crafts and games.For the first time ever, the festival will continue on to Lionshead Village the following weekend, Aug. 1 through Aug. 3.We could not be more pleased about adding a Vail weekend to the already successful Beaver Creek show, festival promoter Brian Nolan said.
