    Looking forward to attending my first Rhythm On the Ridge Festival! I grew up in Mariaville and learned to ski on Maple`s bunny hill. This year, I will be a vendor selling my handcrafted jewelry amd I have invited family and friends to hear the amazing original pieces the artists have created!

    I have never heard of River On The Edge, but when a friend told me about it, I looked it up, and was surprised to learn about all of the bands and activities happening. I definitely want to attend.
