We went to Sunfest for the first time on Saturday, the biggest full moon of the year. Everyone was in a good mood. Sunfest is a music and art festival held every year in West Palm Beach, Florida. It is a five-day festival, with tons of bands and three different stages. Michael Franti played this year, so of course, we had to go!
Michael Franti, mar, and me
I love Michael Franti. His music, his message, and he just seems like a really nice guy (and he loves yoga!). I saw him play years ago in Colorado at Red Rocks. I listen to his music all the time.Many of his songs have powerful messages. Messages of peace, social justice, and love. We got to meet him. He has kindness in his eyes.
We went to the festival with a really good friend of mine. Casandra Tanenbaum. Casandra is a dancer, a hoop instructor, a teacher, a yogini, a grad student, and more. She created and organizes the Florida Flow Festival held yearly in Lake Worth Florida. The festival has workshops on Poi, Hoop Dance, Yoga, and other movement. It is awesome. She is awesome.
Hanging out with Casandra…hoop magic
She is really fun to hang out with.
Groove and Flow
Anyways, we danced for hours, and drank gallons of lemonade.We watched Soja (also a really good band) and Michael Franti. Music and dancing. Celebrating life.

I understand why they call it “SunFest”. It was hot. No clouds. No shade. But regardless of the heat, we had a great time.
Flowing with Fans
I feel blessed. Music is powerful.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
