Photos: Wild times at Richardson’s annual arts and music blowout
Highlights included locals with stars in their eyes and Charlie Daniels' fiddle.
RICHARDSON Richardson's annual arts and music blowout, the Wildflower Festival, returned May 17 through 19 bolstered by a host of local and national acts that kept the eager crowds rocking all weekend. From big timers like Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen, and The Charlie Daniels Band to newcomer contest winners spread across six performance stages, the festival amped the inspirational and let the good times roll.
Speaking of rolling, the weekend also saw the WildRide! WildRun! Against Cancer, a bicycle race and 5k, and local restaurateurs wheeled in to keep bellies full. The Ultimate Smoker & Grill, an 80-foot rig, also made an appearance, serving up more than 2,000 pounds of smokey meat. Check out our photos from the festivities on Friday, May 17.
