The semester is winding down but the fun is just beginning. Event promoter Rodney Williams has made sure that the city of Russellville has plenty to do this summer.
It all starts with Russellville’s annual balloon festival, now known as “BalloonDayz,” will be held at the Pope County Fairgrounds May 13-15. The event will feature live entertainment, a “Bluegrass Battle of the Bands,” balloon rides (hot air or tethered), monster truck rides and more.
August 13 and 14, the Valley Music Fest will be held at the Pope County Fairgrounds. The event will feature 22 bands over the two-day period, with southern rock legends The Marshall Tucker Band and The Kentucky Headhunters closing the festival.
A “Battle of the Bands” competition will also be held at the event. Bands will compete to win $5,000 and a chance to open for the headliners.
Lastly is the Craig Morgan concert on September 30, where Morgan and his band will be performing all of their radio hits, plus songs from Morgan’s upcoming album. Tickets are still available, and Tech students can get $10 off tickets by using promo code “ATU” at checkout.
