Festival kicks off Friday night in Kannapolis

KANNAPOLIS ó Village Fest kicks off Friday night in downtown Kannapolis and continues all day Saturday.
A Gospel sing begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday and ends at 10. Saturday’s events start with the MS Walk/5K Run at 9 a.m. on the steps of the Core Laboratory at the N.C. Research Campus.
The festival continues with performances throughout the day by dance companies and bands. Vendors will line the streets of the village.
Attractions include food, entertainment for kids, helicopter rides, crafts and more.
Hot air balloons will lift off at 5:30 p.m., and the final free concert of the weekend starts at 7 p.m., featuring Super Glide.
The Research Campus recently announced a $1 million gift from Charlotte theater mogul Herman Stone to help cure multiple sclerosis, so MS Walk organizers hope to attract 400 participants this year.
Walkers and runners may register online at www.walkMS.info or call 1-800-344-4867. There will also be a tent set up near the core lab for late registration.
Village Fest started 25 years ago as the Cottonstock Balloon Rally and Arts & Crafts Festival.
The Cabarrus Events Association is organizing the festival. To see a complete line-up of entertainment, go to www.cabarrusevents.org.
