“It’s that time of the year again. The Pinedale Fine Arts Council will be presenting the sixth annual Soundcheck Mini-Music Fest on June 29, 2013 in the American Legion Park in Pinedale (5 p.m., free). Sound Check was first conceived five years ago following PFAC’s purchase of a new sound system via grant monies from the Wyoming Cultural Trust. The inaugural event was a hit so it became an annual festival with attendance growing each year. This is sure to be the music event of the summer so mark the date on the calendar, dust off your cooler and camp chairs and come listen to some great music!” organizers said.
