Unless you're fiddling, avoid park Sunday

-A A +A
By Brian Funk, Editor

Galax’s population will soar in the coming week, as thousands of fiddlin’ fans descend on the city.

Felts Park will open its gates at 7 a.m. Sunday for the 73rd Annual Old Fiddlers’ Convention. The competition opens Monday night and lasts through Aug. 9.

Most of the convention’s expected 1,300 campers will show up Sunday to set up camp.

Locals who aren’t convention-bound should avoid the place altogether or choose alternate routes, Galax police advise.
