On Saturday March 30th, Dave Landeo and Tod Sheley will perform on the stage at World’s Fair Park – just steps from the Finish Line! This acoustic duo performs a variety of good time sing-along covers and originals. Dave, now residing in Charleston, SC and Tod Sheley, from Knoxville bring back the acoustic duo that performed all around the Knoxville area for years back in the day….also performing at venues in Key West, Cincinnati & Atlanta. Co-writers of the song “Colorado Sky”, they will bring new material to this special show. Saturday night after the 5K from 7:30 pm – 10 pm on the Festival Lawn at the World’s Fair Site will be a great time!

At this year’s event, Calhoun’s Restaurant will be serving up beer from their world famous microbrewery, Smoky Mountain Brewery! They will serve beer on Saturday after the 5K (7 pm – 9:30 pm) and again on Sunday (10 am – 3 pm). Each registered participant, 21 and older, will receive a ticket for one complimentary beer.
