Friday blogs are a mix of things instead of fitting a theme like my other blog days. Most of the time it will be event oriented and other times just something I needed to share.

The 2010 Season Passes for the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View are now available at a cost of $65 for adults and $30 for kids 6 to 12. Children 5 and under are admitted free.
A season pass gets you into the Craft Village and allows you to attend regular evening music concerts throughout the season. Celebrity Concerts are not included.
The season runs from April 16 through Oct. 31. The Craft Village is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday through Saturday from April 16 through Sept. 30, except on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. On those holidays, the park is open Sunday and Monday also. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday during the month of October.
The passes may be purchased at the park or by calling (870) 269-3851. For a detailed schedule of music concerts and other events, visit OzarkFolkCenter.com. Workshops are available throughout the year for many traditional crafts, music and herbs.
The mission of this state park is to preserve, perpetuate and interpret precious traditional folk arts. The Craft Village presents more than 20 different demonstrations of Ozark mountain pioneer crafts such as basket making, pottery, blacksmithing, quilting and broom making. Craft items are for sale both from the artisans directly and in the Homespun Gift Shop. The Village also contains an herb garden and children’s area. Music is a big part of this as well.
In addition to the Crafts Village and Music Theater, the Folk Center offers a full service restaurant open during the season from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Duplex-type cabins are available year round. The park also has convention and banquet facilities.
