Carolina Blues Festival May 17, 2014

28thFestPromo1

The Piedmont Blues Preservation Society also announces its anticipation of the POP! Downtown Greensboro series of temporary Art installations to appear in un-occupied storefront windows from mid-March to the end of May 2014.  Downtown Greensboro, Inc., in collaboration with Open Art Society (OAS) will feature up to 10 artists from around the region responding to the theme “BLUES.”

The blues theme came to be as OAS recognized that iconic musicians developed the Piedmont Blues style right in our “backyard”, a sound that took hold in the south and influenced music around the world. The project will also celebrate the Carolina Blues Festival produced by Piedmont Blues Preservation Society held May 17, 2014.

2013 MudBug Run (Teaser) from Ray Publishing Interactive

A 5K course through Hagan Stone Park will take you through 16 of the best obstacles you’ve seen. There will be fire, ice, mud, water, walls, hay bales, dumpsters, crawling, crying, yelling and more.

This year we’ve found a new play toy: SCAFFOLDING.

You’ll get a great looking T-Shirt, a finishers medal, a beer and a kickin’ sense of accomplishment. It’s the best race around and it’s here for the taking.

What do I get?

1.  Free Beer ***
2.  The Official 2013 MudBug Run T-Shirt
3.  The 2013 MudBug Run Finisher Medal

4.  Access to After Party

5.  A Good Time

6.  Probably One Less Shoe

*** One beer is included for each participant who is of legal age to consume alcohol.  Root beer available for those under 21 and/or adults.​

Is it safe?​

Nothing worth doing in life is absolutely safe, but we take every precaution possible to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time. There will be EMT’s on site in case of an emergency. In the end, just like life, you race at your own risk.

THERE WILL BE SOME SCUFFED KNEES, ELBOWS AND A LITTLE INSANITY. YOU’LL STILL BE SMILING, THOUGH.
