Two-year-old Dahlia Wardlaw and her dad, Ben Wardlaw, ran through the beautifully in bloom lavender fields during the Fun in the Field Lavender Festival on Saturday.

Peeking through the rows of lavender bushes, people were seen spending their Saturday talking, listening to music and learning about lavender and the many different things that can be done with it. The first ever Fun in the Field Lavender Festival drew a crowd of people excited to see what Simplicity Lavender Farm would offer to them next. Jordan Privett/jprivett@cassville-democrat.com

What could be more soothing than a field of lavender bushes? Maybe adding the beautiful sound of music to the mix. Lancaster Station played music for the patrons of the first ever Fun in the Field Lavender Festival on Saturday. Jordan Privett/jprivett@cassville-democrat.com
