They come from all over the country for a three day music festival called Gathering of the Vibes. Of course, while everyone who attends isn’t exactly a hippie, most are.

I have to admit, I went there pretty skeptical about the festival as a whole with one main agenda: see The Avett Brothers live. They were the headlining band for the day, coming on to end the festival at 6pm.
During the almost nine hours my friend and I were at the festival, we encountered tons of unique characters and parents who had their entire families in tow.
