Hilltown Families and the Green River Festival have partnered up to offer two very lucky families a 4-pack of free day pass tickets to the 24th Annual Green River Festival, the weekend of July 17 & 18, 2010!

Presented by the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, this celebration combines music on two stages, food, crafts, dancing, a wide array of kids activities and hot air balloon launches (weather permitting) for the Pioneer Valley’s biggest outdoor event of the summer. This is the only music festival in Massachusetts that features hot air balloons and rides.

We have two 4-packs of day pass tickets to giveaway:

 

  • 4-pack of day pass tickets for Saturday, July 17th
  • 4-pack of day pass tickets for Sunday, July 18th

 

 

Kids under 12 are free, so each winning family can invite along another family for a day of music, dancing and balloons in Greenfield, MA! Tickets do not including parking or food. Details on how to enter to win are below. Deadline to enter is Sunday, July 11th by 7pm (EST).

ABOUT THE GREEN RIVER FESTIVAL

The Green River Festival began in 1986 as a balloon festival and has gained increasing popularity each year as more and more music and dance entertainment have been added. Today it has become a fantastic summer musical event in Western Massachusetts with two stages of music.  This year the festival will feature Old Crow Medicine Show, Red Stick Ramblers, The Sweetback Sisters, CAKE, Brooks Williams, Anais Mitchell, Academy Freightshakers and many other top talented bands.

New this year is The River’s Meltdown Kids’ Stage, featuring family music with The Primate Fiasco, Deedle Deedle Dees, The Nields, Elizabeth Mitchell, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Flannery Brothers, Mister G, School for the Dead and several other bands we’ve featured on the Hilltown Family Variety Show!

The Festival is a two-day event and will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 17th & 18th on the grounds of Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA. Hot Air Balloons fly, weather permitting, on Friday and Saturday at 6pm and Saturday morning at 6am. Onsite parking is available for a fee, or there is free parking and shuttle bus service available. The Festival is working towards zero-waste and no pets or alcohol are allowed.
