Where else can you enjoy a music festival like this? Seaside Park, P.T. Barnum’s waterfront gift to the city, is a jewel of a venue hosting the Gathering of the Vibes that has attracted tens of thousands throughout the years and showcases the state’s largest city as an emerging cultural arts and music destination. Will it be back?
Vibes organizer Ken Hays says he wants the four-day hippie fest to return. City officials want it to return as well. Crunching dollars and cents will be the final determination.
The Vibes is an example of give people what they want and they will show, even in a difficult economy. Radio and television stations throughout the state conducted live remotes and reports from The Vibes introducing a positive slice of the city so many did not know existed.
Will it be back? Encore, please.
