A beautiful sunny summer's afternoon and the rustic environs of Hurlburt Community Park in Roxbury proved the perfect tandem July 9 for the 37th annual Pickin'n Fiddlin contest.

Approximately 2000 concert goers were treated to a wide variety of talent and style by 130 contestants in the seven-hour music marathon.

The event is an annual benefit for the Roxbury Volunteer Fire Department.
