"The Bluegrass Weekend is one of our most popular events and it sells out quickly," said Barb Krumm, director of marketing and public relations. "Every year, we showcase some of the top names in Bluegrass and our guests really seem to enjoy the weekend. I would suggest that anyone interested in attending the show reserve their stay at Ocean Lakes and purchase their tickets soon so they don't miss out on a weekend of fun and fantastic music."
