Mar10 Day is an annual salute to the entire Mario franchise. It takes place on March 10 each year because the date, written as “Mar10,” looks uncannily like “Mario.” The event gained traction on the internet as fans of the Mario franchise shared their love for the character online.
Crosstown Concourse will celebrate the holiday with a performance from Memphis’ own video game-themed band PXLS, old school arcade games, video game-themed mini golf, a portrait booth (perfect if you’re dressing up in video game-inspired attire!), video game-themed temporary tattoos, and more!
PXLS, returning to Crosstown Concourse in celebration of the Better Together event, is a Memphis-based video game music cover band with their own unique take on video game music. They play classic 8-bit and 16-bit era songs and invite listeners to relive the soundtrack to their childhoods. In addition to classic console game-inspired music, the band’s repertoire spans several genres like rock, jazz, and reggae.
