The first Mushroom Festival will be held in Bugtussel this weekend, beginning at 9 a.m. today and continuing through Saturday at The Mushroom Farm. Mushroom tours are offered during the day, and live bands will fill the air with music in the afternoon and evening. Fred Fry, the farm’s owner, expects a crowd of 2,000 people and hopes to increase interest in the mushroom growing industry.
