WHAT WE DID: SPECIAL OAKTOPIA 2015 EDITION

And here's our second What We Did post of the day. This one is complete with tons of images from this weekend's Oaktopia festival. This was the third year of Oaktopia and we're crossing our fingers to hear about a fourth one soon. Anyway, we had a blast hitting up venues on the square and down Hickory St. and loved seeing both the local and national acts. 

Below are tons of photos from both WDDI photogs and you, the WDDI readers and Instagram taggers. You can click through on those photos to get to their Instagram pages and follow them. Check our all of the images below and let us know your favorite part of Oaktopia in the comments!


Oaktopia had many pieces of public art (both interactive and non) up at the festival this year.
