In the tiny mountain community of Silverton, festivarians and music lovers grabbed their blankets, rain gear and tarps and set up shop for the third Annual Silverton Jamboree Music Festival. Local talent along with nationally acclaimed musicians played through downpours, snow, hail and sun, revealing that it will take more than a little bothersome weather to ruin a weekend of live music!
