Hillyard Hippie Happening

When: Sat., Sept. 6, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2014

If there’s one thing hippies do really well, it’s peacefully gathering to jam out and celebrate being hippies. The “happening” begins and ends with Jimi Hendrix’s version of “The Star Spangled Banner” performed by various artists, and in between features at least seven local artists, including Tommy G, Six-Strings n’ Pearls and a jam session that might even include you. This party wouldn’t be complete without a nod to marijuana, appropriately included in the 420 Wheel, a game that gives prizes for every spin. Other games include a Best Dancer Contest, Name that Tune and Best Hippie Garb. Go ahead: break out your old radical tie-dye and everything flowy.
