The Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival is coming up in Sept. 20-22. It's going to be a huge event with lots of music and food down in Columbia at Stephens Lake Park. They're going to have all sorts of huge performances from names you know including The Black Crowes, Blues Traveler, Steve Earle, Mavis Staples, Johnny Winter, Bela Fleck, Samantha Fish and more.

They're also going to be having a run and marathon. You can sign up now for the Roots N Blues N BBQ 1/2 Marathon & 10K. You'll enjoy music along the course plus delicious BBQ and a refreshing beverage at the finish line. All runners will receive a commemorative medal, a collector's shirt and a 50% discount on tickets to the festival! The 1/2 marathon begins at 7 a.m. The 10K begins at 7:30 a.m.

I got to talk with Steve Sweitzer with the festival and he told us more details.
