Free Blues Fest in College Park



    This year's free College Park Blues Festival features free admission and free parking as the fest that celebrates 25 years of the D.C. Blues Society, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the blues.

    Door prizes include mobile accessories and $10 gift cards; shell out for raffle tickets for the chance to win an electric guitar, diamond earrings and more. You'll also have the chance to shop holidy vendors for some early decor/gift gathering.

    As for the blues: Fast Eddy and The Slowpokes, The Nighthawks and the DCBS band are all scheduled to perform. The winner of the Battle of Bands will go onto the International Blues Challange in Memphis, Tenn.

    The festival runs 6-11:30 p.m. this Saturday, Nov, 10 at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.
