Celebrate the Planet festival set for July 7

Celebrate the Planet from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, July 7, for an all-day celebration behind Painted Planet Artspace, 798 S. Cooper.

There will be face painters, hula hooping, games, kids’ music, and other “kid friendly” things from 11 to 3 p.m. For the teens and adults, there will be lots of music with bluegrass, country, praise, and blues playing all day and into early evening, and a jam session from 3-6 where everyone’s welcome to bring their instrument and jam.

Painted Planet Artspace’s favorite artists will paint live and create jewelry live, as well. At 6:30, the Battle of the Bands begins with rock, metal, praise, rap, alternative, country and blues artists competing, with the top three bands winning free recording at our studio. First-place winner records an entire CD, with artwork, band photos and a CD release party at our expense.

Lots more prizes have generously been given for first place. You won’t get hungry, because they’ll have great food and drink at great prices.

Bring your family, friends, lawn chairs and sunscreen, and get ready to Celebrate the Planet at this all-day blast, directly behind Painted Planet, @ 798 S Cooper. Call us if you’re a musician, artist, or vendor who’d like to be part of this fun event, or if you need more info, at 725-0054.
