Out of the Woods

Expanded Backwoods Fest draws thousands

THORNVILLE - Thousands headed to the Backwood Fest off High Point Road last weekend.

The Lauders enjoyed a great weekend to expand the popular festival to three days, adding Friday. The festival also physically expanded by extending Main Street deeper into the woods and looping back to Cemetery Road on a new Ditto Lane.

Hungry or thirsty visitors could choose from more than two dozen food vendors. More than 250 arts and crafts vendors offered something for every taste.
