The family-friendly MarbleFest attracted all sorts of characters from all stages of life. There were artisans, a book binder, a bookstore in the back of a VW bus and a dog in a sidecar — among many other quirky and vibrant happenings. Folks happily perused the booths or sat in the shade of the tall trees on the grassy hillside facing the main stage. Lively musical acts serenaded the crowd, whose vibe matched the blissful and unique atmosphere of Marble on the weekend of Aug. 14. Photos by Sue Rollyson.
