I was perusing through TS archives and saw that Rick-Pittsburgh used to post the details of this event each year. Now that I'm not far from Ohiopyle, PA and will likely attend the event, I suppose I'll post the details for y'all.

Just wanted to remind anyone in the area that Ohiopyle's annual Beer and Gear Festival is this Saturday. 3:30-7pm, $20, includes unlimited beers, although I bet they'd cut you off at some point, and access to all the vendors. Mostly whitewater vendors, but some general outdoor gear vendors too.

I'll try to snag a photo or two and post on here upon my return. Cheers!

Didn't take the camera out during the Beer and Gear Festival, as I may have been a little busy, but I managed to snag a few shots on some short hikes in the area. 

The festival was a great event and I recommend it for anyone in the area. Great beer, decent music and nice giveaways from some of the gear vendors. See you next year!

Classic Laurel Highlands shot. In the valley you have the Youghiogheny River and a railway (the only manmade structure we could see from this lookout).
