It was a cool scene in Bryant Park yesterday Saturday. Lots of young hippies came out and old. A lot of time was spent to perfect the Dred hair style, from short to long. On a walk thru there was so much going on. Time was taken with arts, crafts, yoga, acrobatics, tight rope walking, hula hoops galore and meditations that it seemed the music was almost secondary.
Tickets to this event were $35 per person no exception this was a fund-raiser. Bags were checked diligently at the gate, it was a drug free event. It wasn’t Woodstock, bedroles, extra shawls for the brisk evening to come as the event lasted till 10 p.m. comfort was not lost on me. $30 dollars more for the “private” after party at Propaganda The afternoon was perfect, not sure what happened once the thermometer dipped below 65 degrees, love love love and lots of bundling.
No one locally seemed to now about it. I’d checked the city website, lula arts, all my usual sources. I’d heard about it several weeks ago as my friend”s daughter was trying to make reservations for Valentines weekend concert in Bryant Park. (LOL). They had to resort to airbnb as everything was already booked for this weekend. Once I had posted this past Friday, it showed up on the Lake Worth FB pages. The performing groups do have a following, next one will be in Atlanta and previous one was in Ft. Lauderdale.
The story behind this is sad. Mary Jane Evans ‘s son Benjamin passed due to an overdose and as it is an epidemic problem they have honored his memory in this way. Read the story about us on their website.
“it was decided to organize the event and use any money raised by the festival to help people with addiction. In addition, it was suggested that we have counselors on site to aid anyone needing help or wanting to talk. Powered by a team of motivated youth that recognizes that true power is in action, the B.E. Easy Music and Arts Festival and the B.E. Easy Scholarship Fund Inc. (a 501(c)3 charitable organization), were established.”
