A multi-day music festival could be coming to Entice Couples Boutique in the fall.
Hometown Headlines reports the Rome Floyd County Planning Commission recently received an application from High Five Investments to bring a weekend music festival and bike rally to the seven acres located off of New Calhoun Hwy. Dubbed the Outskirts at 53 Music Festival and Bike Rally, the event organizers hope to recreate a ‘Bonnaro’ feel, made complete with camping and bands like The Georgia Satellites and the Georgia Blues Brothers. 
The concert is designed for those 18-years and older, so beer and wine will be served. 
For the festival to take place, the site must first be rezoned from heavy commercial to community commercial. The planning commission will discuss the proposal at their August 1st 2:30pm meeting at City Hall.
