Rhinelander, WI is the host of the Hodag Country Festival, a weeklong concert and celebration of classic, established, and brand new country artists. It is a major party, and the faithful return year after year. Oftentimez, the faithful bring along n00bz, who are easy to spot by the paper plate medallion declaring their Hodag virginity, which hangs loosely from their neck, akin to Flava Flav’s clock. I didnt take many photos over the weekend because i was in party and defensive mode, alternately. I did, however, catch Don Williams briefly, and this is my favorite shot.
