Dixie Fest

May Eynon

Louisiana native Clay Lowery hosted a barbecue a few weeks ago, inviting friends of all ages. The setting of the Sunday soiree was an Old Snowmass ranch where Lowery lives. The first annual “Dixie Fest” took place as the fall colors were on the cusp of losing their luster.”I felt it was about time I got some friends together to enjoy each other’s company,” said Lowery.The Southern gentleman invited friends over to make dinner on the grill and enjoy conversation around a bonfire. Other activities included a few innings of wiffle ball, Frisbee tossing and driving around in an ATV. A special “combustion air chamber fire pit” recently built by the host was the site of several rounds of s’mores. Due to relentless high-speed winds, guests dropped their sticks and fled the scene, dodging the smoke wafting from the pit. Lowery’s friend pulled his new pickup truck around the bonfire to block the wind and calm was restored. After the sugar had worn off on the kids and parents decided it was time to retire, the first annual get-together was drawn to a close. “Dixie Fest will be back next year,” avowed Lowery. “I reckon our first time was a success.”To contact May to send info, insight or invites, e-mail allthewaymaymay@hotmail.com
