BLOG 

Oh the Stories !!!

 We are tapping some key folks as Guest Bloggers to tell their stories ... well, at least the ones they can tell in public 😎🤣🤣. Stories give folks some insight into the festival and some history on the mischief over the years .... give it a read and volunteer to tell your story 📣

It's all fun and games trying to feed Saliva and Drowning Pool until you realize you are in total darkness & you have no clue how to work a soda gun, or is it a soda jerk? No, I am definitely the jerk in this equation, wow this escalated quickly - send help.

Ray Francis CMT's bar manager tells us what it's like on the other side of the bar at CMT. Did we mention 2023 was his first CMT as bar manager, you know the universe loved that!
