Summer of the Sheep

What: Green River Festival

A festival held every summer which combines music (including They Might Be Giants) on two stages, food, crafts, dancing, kids activities, hot air balloons and fireworks.

Where:

The festival itself will be held in Greenfield, MA. This is roughly 2 hours from Boston, 3 hours from New York City, 4 hours from Syracuse, and 3 hours from Burlington, VT. There is camping nearby in both state parks and campgrounds (I like this one - we could rent the big field as a group), as well as hotels (for the less adventurous).

When:

The festival takes place on Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19. I'm planning to stay another day and explore nature!
