The town of Rocky Mount and Crooked Road mural dedication will be held Saturday, Oct. 12 from 3 to 6 p.m.

The mural is located along a wall in the shopping center parking lot off South Main Street, across the street from the Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital and Franklin County Historical Society.

Randy Jones said the artists who painted the mural, Carol Yopp, Carolyn Rogers, Karl Schad and Joan Rogers, will attend and have some of their art on display.

Bluegrass bands “Wound Tight” and “Mountain Music String Band” are scheduled to play, and moonshine cars will be displayed, along with Blue Ridge Performing Arts Academy dancers performing. Food vendors will be on-site as well.
