Called a “kid-friendly, bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post

Parents’ Choice Award-winner Mister G will perform on July 9.
Mister G has headlined at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Getty
Museum, and The National Zoo, and has played at New Orleans Jazz &
Heritage Festival and Austin City Limits.
Saturday, one of the festival bands will lead a Mardi Gras parade
around the fairgrounds at 5:30pm. A swimming shuttle will run to the
Green River from 2-6 Saturday and Sunday. For the first time this
year, the festival will offer a hay bale maze, bouncy house, and an
expanded lawn games section on Saturday and Sunday.
There will be an Art Garden from noon to 6pm Saturday and Sunday under
the tent in the lower field. The festival will provide an abundance of
quality art materials, inspiring ideas, and plenty of work/play space
to get creative. On Saturday, the Art Garden will focus on making
processional flying creatures, masks and music-makers for the Mardi
Gras parade. On Sunday, it will introduce a variety of new mixed media
projects using paint, fabric and upcycled materials. The Art Garden is
a community supported art-making place located in Shelburne Falls, MA.
Lastly, and not just for kids, hot air balloon rides are an integral
part of the Green River Fest experience since its inception. For
little ones who might be scared of heights, tethered rides are
offered, which take about 5 minutes and see the balloon rise above the
field while held to a stationary point. Tickets can be purchased that
day on the field at $10 for kids and $15 for adults.
