At Canyonfest, it’s about having fun no matter what your age

Kittredge’s Canyonfest is all about fun — small-town fun.

With the pounding rhythms of a rock band — along with food, beer and wine — for adults to enjoy, kids had fun blowing gigantic bubbles, hula-hooping, participating in sack and duck races, and more.

Russett Goulding, a longtime organizer of Canyonfest, walked up to attendees on Saturday, asking if they were having fun. She has been known to call the festival a Mayberry-like event, referring to the “Andy Griffith Show.”
