Second annual Finger Mountain Breakdown set for this weekend

It’s time once again to break out your camping hat, your bluegrass pants, your beer-drinking shirt, and your music listening necklace for the second annual Finger Mountain Breakdown, taking place this weekend in Fayetteville.

The Finger Mountain Breakdown is a “festival celebrating the Ozarks tradition of roots and bluegrass music during the fall splendor of late October.”

There will be camping beginning on Friday, Oct. 23, and the music starts Saturday the 24th at 12:00 with Shout Lulu, Tiffany Christopher, Honky Suckle, The Crumbs, and more.

Last year was the first year for the festival, and all of the proceeds went to a local family to help cover costs in their efforts to help save their daughter’s vision.

The FMBD will once again raise money for charity. This year, the money raised will go to Ozark OffRoad Cyclists, an organization whose mission is to promote mountain biking and mountain biking trails in the Ozark Region, and to support the preservation and protection of public green spaces and green trails across the land. OORC will be hosting a mountain bike poker run ride on Saturday at 2:00 pm.

There will be face painting, and a pumpkin patch for the kids, BBQ, a bonfire, and of course, tons of music.
