Hundreds of visitors came out Saturday September 24 for the 37th annual Mountain Heritage Day festival on the campus of Western Carolina University. Tourists, community members, and Western students enjoyed the traditional music,  great food, and variety of local crafters. 
The weather was perfect for the event with clear blue skies and only a few clouds in the sky through out the whole day.
To see more from the festival go to for a complete photo slide show.
