As the day grew warmer, the crowd grew larger at the second annual Slice Fest in Birmingham, Alabama. Fun activities for the kiddos and deliciously spectacular pizza from Slice are just two things that set SliceFest above all the rest.
In addition to the awesome refreshments and fabulous food, the rocking hot bands made the day fly by with stage stompin’ excitement! Live performances by headlining band JJ Grey & Mofro, Ponderosa, Rollin’ in the Hay, Banditos, Bad Brad & the Sipsey Slims, Wildflowers, Ophelia, and Festival Expressions were the icing on this festive cake—or shall I say the toppings on the pizza?
If you did not think it could get better than divinely fresh stone pizzas, local brews, and live music, then think again. SliceFest 2013 partnered with local charities, Alabama Forever and Suki Foundation, to donate a portion of the festivals proceeds to great these causes. Fun and a good deed! Yes, yes, indeed.
SliceFest Sponsors included: Birmingham Budweiser, BB&T, Birmingham Mountain Radio, City of Birmingham, Cocoa-Cola, happy Family, Kassouf & Co., Mancha Hardscapes, and Super Deal.
