The schedule of entertainment will include music from Feet First, Jungle Jill and the Jaybirds, The Soulies, Timothy Abbott and Arcana Mundi, Groundwork Music Orchestra, Evening Optimist, and Will Courtney. Children will have the opportunity to meet and learn from the Tree Man, who is a wonder and delight for all ages.
Other offerings include jugglers, face painting and community sponsored activities like life-sized Jenga and chess, hula-hoops, legos, gardening, spin art, many different craft stations (now’s your chance to make that mother’s day gift!), and ladder golf.
Refreshment vendors include Amy’s Ice Creams, Arlan’s Domino Dogs, Snowie’s Shaved Ice, El Dorado Cafe, Fire and Slice Pizza and Jack Hates Coffee.
This spring’s festival is the 15t h neighborhood event VCCW has coordinated since 2003. The event will again showcase the best of local music; food and arts; neighborhood history; community resources; and family activities. Proceeds from the festival will benefit projects in the Brentwood and Crestview communities. This year’s silent auction and raffle will benefit playground equipment improvements at Brentwood Park.
