A New Home for the 7th Annual Bluegrass Festival

The music was great as always at the 7th Annual Bluegrass Festival.

Now before it's been held outside in heat other times it's been at the MPEC, but this year coordinators are holding it at the Texoma Cowboy Church and people say it's the best so far.

It's the same kind of music, but in a different place.

The 7th Annual Bluegrass Festival was held at the Texoma Cowboy Church for the first time this year and city officials say the venue is an improvement.

"The sound quality is much better. The MPEC is kind of sterile inside, there isn't a whole lot of acoustics so this building was just perfect for it. The atmosphere just looks like you should have a blue grass festival in here," said Amy McKim the Wichita Falls Parks and Rec. Program Coordinator.

With its many cowboy decorations, like the pictures and paintings to the old western storefronts those who attended the event agree, the cowboy church is just right.

"Blue grass goes back to country folks and back years ago when everybody was either farmers or cowboys, and so this setting is great for this event," said Bluegrass enthusiast, Don Morgan.

Even the music seems to fit the new home of the festival.

"It has gospel roots, so holding it in a church kind of sounded perfect," said McKim

Perfect for those who love to sit and enjoy the smooth grass tunes.

And if you haven't made it out to the festival yet it's not too late or too expensive.

Bands will be playing blue grass tunes till nine o'clock tonight.
