Families and friends flocked to Founders Park Friday night to kick off the first Meet the Mountains Outdoor Festival in Johnson City.

Food, craft and recreational vendors lined the sidewalk around the grassy area of Founders Park, which featured obstacle courses, rock-climbing walls, biking rinks and a pool for a dog-jumping competition.

Live music — and plenty of beer — greeted groups entering the festival with bands like the Daniel Couper Band, Demon Waffle and Doctor Ocular.

Meet the Mountains will continue all day Saturday with outdoor activity classes for hiking, backpacking and an “Herbalachia Clinic.”
