It is at my favorite venue for a fest, Spirit Of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP). Purple Hatters Ball
May 10th-12th It is a smaller fest, built on a sad story, but created for a great cause.
Rachel Morningstar Hoffman was a 23 year old recent grad of Florida State University. She was on adruqcourt ordered supervision program for possession of Mary Jane, under 25gm, as I under stand it, when her apartment was raided it was found with green ounces and X pills? Not sure on what all was found and what all was hers, but it was a VOP. Then, as I understand it, Tallahassee Police Department offered her no additional charges, if she worked as a confidential informant. She agreed. Two weeks later she was involved in a botched deal that involved a gun, and $13,000 worth of coke and X. Two days after that her lifeless body was found. She will be 28 years old. She was known for wearing a Purple Hat. This is her Ball.

Lono this is a very sad story. but this weekend is about celebration! ;D and I started that today as I crashed the Party Shop and took all their purple decorations. Short Cut Camp presents: The Morning Star trail.
klim, this was the smallest fest I have been to, by the end of the week you have said hello to almost everyone there. The crowd was also a lot younger than me, but that did not matter, I let those young kids teach me a thing or two. This is a awesome fest! I had a great time! Cindy, you would have loved the trail. One thing that you can not see, is the "Fire fly orgy" in the trees. Just look up! You have seen them, so I think you know what I am talking about. Well you will at Bear Creek you will and you will see a lot more. Each trail gets better than the one before and I have big plans for Bear Creek. ;D Sugar, there was a lot of mischievous laughter those two nights. Like the time I told a group, they should be thankful I am not a cheap ass and how lucky they are that I was willing to spend that extra nickel and get the sticks with the glow. They could have just gotten plastic sticks, but I was thinking of them and splurged and got sticks that glow, rather than try to save a penny and get the non glow sticks.
Updated the original post. This is a small fest with an amazing vibe. Highly recommended. Good times for sure! I am loving this line up.
