Roadrunner Music Festival Scheduled for April 11
April 4, 2015
Dalton State is combining a love of music with a love of arts to bring the community the Second Annual Roadrunner Music Festival Saturday, April 11, from 6 to 11 p.m.
“We want to showcase local arts, national arts, and Roadrunner arts. Please come and enjoy a very relaxing, laid-back, music festival atmosphere,” said Montana Gray, Director of the Campus Activities Board.
As two local bands play, people will be invited to create encouraging and inspirational art with the assistance of Dalton State students. That art will be used as a backdrop for the bands. Art will be available for pickup following the headliner, Mockingbird Son. Mockingbird Son is a Nashville based band with a “folksy rock” sound, Gray said. They are scheduled to hit the stage around 8 p.m.
Participants will also have freedom to express themselves by decorating the College’s famous rock.
There will be activities for children, including carnival games, such as corn hole.
The festival will take place on the Dalton State quadrangle behind the Burran Bell Tower.
Admission and all activities are free to the public. Those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, or camping chairs. Food items will be available for purchase.
There will also be a collection for canned goods for the Birdfeeder, a program which provides food to students in need.
