Do you like chowing down on tasty food and listening to great music in the even greater outdoors? We sure do! For 15 years Lightlife has sponsored a local community festival called the Green River Festival. The festival is one of the largest in the area, and is one that is looked forward to by community members all year long. From numerous musical guests, to hot air balloon rides, the festival brings together families and friends of surrounding towns for a few days of fun year after year. This year was its 25th anniversary! Now that’s staying power! This year was the first time I was able to make it to the festival, and I have to say that it was unlike most festivals I’ve been to in the past. Almost every food vendor there had vegan or vegetarian options available, which was of course was a wonderful surprise. I had a freshly made vegan brick oven pizza with vegetables all grown on a farm in town. Every vendor there in fact was an artist or store from a nearby town. Talk about supporting the community! Needless to say, Lightlife is and has been extremely proud to be a part of making this festival come to life.
Here are a few pictures from the event – I even got to learn how to hula-hoop! So fun!
