By DAVID BORAKS
For the past couple of years, Davidson College’s Connor eating house and Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse have teamed for a “Drink Pink” fundraiser for breast cancer research. This year, they’re going in whole different direction – trading a night of drinking for a daytime festival in Flatiron’s back parking that organizers hope will raise more money for the cause. The Flatiron Fall Festival will run Saturday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 pm, out back at 215 S. Main St., Davidson.
Several hundred people are expected at the event, which will feature music by The Stoney Creek Boys of Cornelius, a cornhole tournament, a silent auction, pumpkin and face painting and more. Read the full story
