The event begins at 6 p.m. with Bojangles providing free food for students, while the first 500 fans will be treated to complimentary stadium food followed by the event itself at 7 p.m. Admission is free to the public.

The Bluenanza – which will be highlighted by scrimmages for both the ETSU men’s and women’s teams, a 3-point shooting contest, and a slam dunk contest – will also feature prize giveaways for both students and fans.
