Shelly Kern’s family reunion this year included a little bit of twang.
She returned this weekend from North Carolina to Vine Grove, where she was raised.
Kern spent the day reuniting with family members from as far away as Atlanta at the Vine Grove Bluegrass Festival in Optimist Park. Listening to a four-piece band singing and picking a song about how cowboys still are cowboys in San Antonio was awesome, she said.
Her grandfather, Mitchell Ivy, said the atmosphere, camaraderie and spirit of the festival are good for the community.
