WAKARUSA 2014


This weekend marked another successful weekend for the Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival on Mulberry Mountain.  Wakarusa began in Lawrence, Kansas (2004-2008) and then moved its location to Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, Arkansas, (2009-present) and attracts music fans from all over the country. Rain or shine Wakarusa gives attendees a wide variety of music acts, art installations and outdoor activities to enjoy during the 4 day event.  Here are some of my favorite photos from this years event.  Check out more photos here.
