For the past 13 years, my family and I have been fiddling around while on vacation. We make an annual trek to Weiser, Idaho to spend the 3rd full week of June attending and competing in the National Oldtime Fiddle Contest.
We stay here - one of three motels in Weiser.
We watch the parade.
We love the hospitality that the small farming community of Weiser puts on for the contest every year. They really go all out for the musicians and many tourists who invade their town every June.
We eat, drink, people-watch, and listen to the Battle of the Bluegrass Bands at Bluegrass Village.
But most of all we attend the fiddle contest. My sons compete while I sit in the stands and do a lot of nailbiting! One or both of them have won or placed every year for 13 years. On the way home we talk about the week, complain if not winning 1st place, and celebrate yet another year of practicing, competing, and nailbiting!
