By Bear Lake Staff / September 30, 2013

Hey, Bear Lakers!  There are some fantastic events coming up in Sylva/Dillsboro this weekend, and you really won’t want to miss out!  Read on to see just what “Colorfest” and “Taste of Sylva” are all about.

Colorfest is coming to Dillsboro, NC on October 5 – and if you want to know more about the culture of our area and see the gorgeous creations of area artisans then this is one festival you will want to attend.  Picturesque Dillsboro sets a perfect backdrop for the festival as artists will be set up throughout the town (only about 25 minutes away from us) painting beautiful pictures.  Enjoy the performances of street musicians as well as food and wine offered in the historic shops of the town.  Make sure to say “hello” to the shop owners – they usually have some great inside information about happenings in the area!  For more information, visit www.visitdillsboro.org or www.colorfestartblog.com.
