Valley Ballyhoo set for Saturday
This article features an event that occurred in the past.
Western Carolina University will host two bands and screen the horror film “Cabin in the Woods” on Saturday, Aug. 18, as part of the university’s annual outdoor Valley Ballyhoo event.
Designed to help connect students with WCU and surrounding community, Valley Ballyhoo features an organization and merchant fair with information tables as well as free food and games from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
Then, Asheville band Kovacs and the Polar Bear will take the stage at the Central Plaza. The band, which performs a unique style of music with folk and rock flavors, captured an audience choice prize at the Asheville Music Video Awards and recently performed at Asheville’s Bele Chere festival.
The act will be followed at 8 p.m. by Black Mountain group Floating Action. Inspired by musician, songwriter and producer Seth Kauffman, Floating Action performs music that crosses dub, folk, blues, garage-rock, soul, reggae, gospel, bossa nova and country genres.
At 9 p.m., American horror movie “Cabin in the Woods” will be screened on the lawn of A.K. Hinds University Center. In the movie, five college students vacationing at a cabin encounter horrific situations being controlled by technicians.
“Valley Ballyhoo is a great event for families and an opportunity for all to learn more about WCU and the community,” said Lori Davis, assistant director for campus activities.
All events are free and open to the public. In the event of rain, the bands will perform in the Grandroom of the University Center, and the movie will be shown in the center’s theater.
