Happy Roots to host Haunted Roots Festival

Submitted

This Saturday, local non-profit organization Happy Roots will host the Haunted Roots Festival, featuring live music from local bands Nashville Punk, Laura Vella and friends, Mama Tried, Paper Wasps, and Big Break.

Also performing will be South Carolina natives Antler Hill, the husband and wife duo of Jessica and Neil “The Scarecrow” Griffin. These musical storytellers are multifaceted in the realms of music and the arts, while using the symbol of a Scarecrow to raise awareness of stuttering, disabilities, and bullying.

Haunted Roots will feature local vendors, food and beverages including barbecue plates from Two Pigs Farm, with fresh baked bread from Better Loafing Artisan Bread Company and sides from Freshouse Produce. Vegetarian and other food options will be available as well. Mean Mug Coffee Company will be on site with hot cocoa, cider, coffee and other beverages.

Featured activities at Haunted Roots include a historic ghost walk through Chestnut Hill Cemetery, a bicycle obstacle course and family ride with The Pedal Factory, raffle, kids’ games and prizes. Bring your best carved pumpkin for a chance to win passes to Grievous Gallery, and wear your best costume to compete in the categories of scariest, cutest, most original, best group costume, and best kid costume with prizes from local businesses.

All proceeds will support Happy Roots’ mission to provide nature-based therapeutic and educational services to the community.

Free admission. 4-11 p.m. at 1026 S. Fulton St.
