VOODOO, BOOGIE AND ENCHANTMENT UNDER THE SEA!
With Halloween fast approaching, it's time to start sewing costumes, carving jack-o'-lanterns and begin thinking about the lovely mischief we'll get into on All Hallow's Eve. How about a diverse, cozy music festival with Umphrey's McGee, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, the Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann and the cream of Northern California's rock scene, all set amongst Yosemite's redwoods at a well appointed lodge? Las Tortugas IV – Dance of the Dead takes place Thursday, October 29 – Sunday, November 1 at Evergreen Lodge.
