Bridgeport Beach Clean-up Precedes Gathering of the Vibes

Aug 01, 2015 02:27AM

From July 30 to August 2, thousands of cars and campers and music fans will gather at Seaside Park in Bridgeport for the 20th Gathering of the Vibes. In late July, The Terrapin Foundation, Save the Sound and the Gathering of the Vibes Ops Crew collaborated for the annual clean up at Remington Beach in Seaside Park in preparation for the event.

Dozens of volunteers from these organizations joined volunteers from Citizens Campaign for the Environment, National Charity League, and community members and families (including a few children) to collect nearly 50 bags of debris.

Seaside Park, along the picturesque Connecticut coast of Long Island Sound, will host over 50 bands on multiple stages during the gathering, forming a nomadic community averaging more than 25,000 each day.

Visitors to Vibes will have numerous activities and experiences, including a silent disco on the beach, school of rock, artisan crafts, international food court, NPO Village, kids’ corner, teens center, ferris wheel, camping and more.
