Mascots join Ala. governor to promote colors day
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — This is the one day each year where crazy antics and colorful costumes are encouraged at the state Capitol.
Gov. Robert Bentley is being joined Friday by mascots from Alabama's public universities to promote the upcoming College Color Days. The annual promotional event will take place on the Capitol's south lawn at 3:30 p.m. It always includes the mascots trying out humorous moves that they will use at upcoming football games.
The governor says this year's College Colors Day is scheduled for Aug. 30. It's a day when Alabamians are encouraged to wear the colors of their favorite school.
