Geek out or sing out at Toadal Game Zone

Join Conway Corporation for some high definition time in the spotlight or challenge your friends to a video game at the Toadal Game Zone.

Conway Corporation has stocked the tent at the corner of Main and Parkway streets with nearly 20 televisions connected to a multitude of gaming systems with the latest games.

For those who want to show off their moves, a 10x10 lighted stage is synched with Xbox One’s “Just Dance 2014,” so festival attendees can go head-to-head in a dance off.

“We can accommodate two to three people at a time on the stage,” said Conway Corporation Marketing Manager Crystal Kemp.

When the sun goes down, the stage lights come on, and Conway Corporation’s Digital Cable package allows festival-goers to find their perfect karaoke tune.

“You can search by different genres, by category, style or artists,” Kemp said. “We’ll have iPads out there so you can search for songs.”

Free game play will be available all day every day, and the stage will be designated for karaoke or dancing at different times throughout the weekend.
