Hangtown Halloween Ball Music Festival El Dorado County Fairgrounds, Placerville, CA, Oct. 23-24, 2015
'Have yourselves a Hangtown Ball" - Railroad Earth lyric.
Colorful costumes, joyous carousing, comfortable camping, and kick-ass jammy music of many genres came together nicely at the fifth annual Railroad Earth-hosted Hangtown Halloween Ball Music Festival. Emanating from the small Sierra Nevada foothill community of Placerville, California, the festival harmoniously balanced a confluence of dust-kicking music to groove by, the festive Halloween season, and the still-present old-West persona of Placerville, dubbed “Hangtown” during the Gold Rush days to honor the type of swift justice handed out to the worst of the miscreants.
