Most of the towns in our area have their own, unique, local festival.  This Friday and Saturday in Cold Spring, they are celebrating "Hometown Pride Days".

MIX 94.9 will be there on Saturday morning at 9am, so just look for the big purple MIX tent.  It is going to be a beautiful weekend - and the MIX Entourage would love to see you in Cold Spring.

Pete and Jen from The Morning MIX talked with Rita, one of the organizers on their show. Listen to that conversation below-
