Lightning in a Bottle has become one of the largest transformational camping festivals in the United States, creating a unique environment for attendees to connect with and experience the world around them in a beautiful and unexpected way. While the lineup and music are both highly anticipated, there is so much more to LIB than just the music. LIB has become a fan favorite festival over the past couple years, and that’s in part because of the vast amount of activities and experiences to partake in. This list is a small sample of all the excitement that awaits you at Lake San Antonio.
