Sunday "Family Day" at Gathering of the Vibes
Gathering of the Vibes is dedicating Sunday, July 22 as “Family Day” at the Bridgeport, CT music festival, which will offer free entry for kids aged 15 and under and half-priced tickets ($20) for all Connecticut residents and members of the military. A host of family and kids-oriented activities will also be offered throughout the weekend at the festival.
“In 2011, ‘Family Day’ turned out better than we ever envisioned. The positive ‘vibe’ was amazing, and the spirit of thousands of young people in attendance was palatable,” says Ken Hays, festival founder. “We want to continue celebrating family, our fellow Connecticut residents, and thanking the men and women who serve our country. ‘Family Day’ has become a great platform for us to do just that.”
The festival recorded 700 families—and 1,800 kids under the age of 15—in attendance last year. This year the festival is celebrating the 13th installment of its Kid’s Corner and Teen Scene areas, as well as a return of their School of Rock Teen Vibes Stage, at which organized jam sessions and music lessons will be offered. A World Peace Prayer and Flag ceremony will kick off Sunday’s festivities, with a children-lead parade to the main stage.
