For the 39th year in a row, theyll dress up like authentic Western folk, cook up a mess o vittles, dance real purdy for the flatlanders and then rob them of their money. Hoo-wee! The lengths these quaint local OC canyon country characters go to just to raise some nickels and dimes for their local book barn, what you city slickers call a public library. This year the colorful people of the exotic badlands of Silverado Canyon sweeten the pot o old-timey frolic and fun with even more charming pickers, players, rockers and a-fiddlers, and insist that you speak like this and play dress-up too, in hats, boots and gingham. Local artists show their work, with an expanded Saturday night music fest including live rock and blues by The Oozie Brothers and Mike Reilly band.
Sat., Oct. 3, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 4, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2009
