Post Haste: Turn up for Congress Fest? Ohio University still looking for VP

It's slated for the day before High Fest.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Monday, Feb. 1, 2016:

It was a near inevitability that’s finally coming to fruition. An additional fest is in the works.

A Facebook page sprang up recently announcing the birth of Congress Fest.  

The event description reads:“The time is upon us. My fellow neighbors of Congress Street, I know you know how to get down. Share this page, invite your friends, and let's get ~weird~”

Congress Fest is slated for Friday, March 18 — the day before High Fest, just a block away.
