Labor Daze Fest — Aug. 31

by Mama Trish (AKA Trisha Ingle)

Greetings! My name is Mama Trish, and have I got a deal for you. First of all, it’s free. FREE! Fun. Family friendly. Socially conscious. By Locals, For Locals, About Locals! And the music is jam up! (I’m not just saying that because my band is playing…)

It’s Labor Daze Fest, at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza (111 E. University Ave.) on Sunday, Aug. 31, from 4-10 p.m. It’s for the people who work too long and too hard for too little. Just need to catch a break? We have FREE services for folks who need them, from education and a Resume Re-do Tent, to women’s interview clothing and HIV testing. There’s a free rock wall, kid’s activities, and fun food. It’s always on Sunday, the day before Labor Day. Tire out the kids and sleep in on Labor Day!

This is our 4th year. It is put on with donations and by volunteers, and is the 2nd largest Labor Day Weekend celebration in the state of Florida! Let that sink in…

There will be speakers and info about things that affect YOU: politics, activism, legislation, non-profits and services. Come learn and network. Or just come and watch jugglers, listen to music, and cool off in the misting tent. Bands this year are: Boilin’ Oil, Flatland, Mama Trish vs. Godzilla!, MSNRA, and Captain Lovely. Come cut a rug, y’all!

Mark your calendar. Tell your friends. Facebook and Twitter and email everyone you know. Labor Daze Fest. It’s a damn fine day.
