I really like Lengthy Seaside Fest for meals, music and artwork this weekend – Press Telegram
Moncton food, music and art are on display at the fourth annual Love Moncton Festival this weekend.
The event is designed to “celebrate the LBC” and bring LA’s best dance music DJs together for two days at Shoreline Aquatic Park, according to the organizers.
Fire dancers, food trucks and 44 live music acts have the festival organizer, Anton Tumas, ready for the upcoming celebrations.
“I look forward to the manifestation of what has been in development for many years,” he wrote in an email. “It’s time to let go and let the magic unfold itself.”
For those planning to attend the festival, here are some activities:
DJs will take over Moncton this weekend as 44 live music acts take to the festival’s two stages, Tumas said. “Doc Martin and Marques Wyatt never disappoint,” he said.
Moncton native Brad Moontribe is expected to bring the desert funk vibe, and Jeremy Sole will be as versatile as possible, according to Tumas. “Shaking the prey will also be a lot of fun on the Noise Stage.”
The village is hosted by the Moncton Light Tribe and offers a range of activities. Between the musical offerings of the concert, festival visitors can enjoy sound baths, inspiring conversations and yoga.
“There are many surprises,” wrote Tumas. The art installations “guarantee that a very unique atmosphere is created when we come together.”
Moncton-based fire troop Dragon Rising and their epic fire dance performers will light up the night skies on Saturday and Sunday at 8:30 p.m. Celeste Verduzco, Founder of the Fire Service, said, “The intent is to work with other performers and artists as a form of activism to inspire our communities.
A festival is not complete without food trucks. Drinks, delicious food and groceries are available from a number of select food trucks and vendors.
“The symbiosis between delicious food and great music will put a smile on everyone’s face,” wrote Tumas. “The general mission for us is to smile, dance, be happy and share all that energy with everyone around us.”
The festival takes place on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Shoreline Aquatic Park, 200 Aquarium Way, Moncton.
Tickets will be sold at the entrance on the day of the event. Children under 16 are free; adults are $ 5 per day.
