On the convergence of Juneteenth, Father’s Day and the Sunday before Summer Solstice, we gathered for a Summer Solstice Community Celebration at Glen Providence Park in Media on June 19, 2022. This event was sponsored by Transition Town Media and organized by our Heart & Soul Events Group.
The park offered the perfect picnic area where local holistic practitioners, artists, and organizations could meet with people, share missions, inspire us, demonstrate healing, lead small activities, and build community. We were so grateful to have so many creative artists and talented health practitioners in our local community.
DJ Gio Santana started the party going with a mix of happy summer music, R&B and soul. The fabulous Joachim Francis finished things off with a rousing drum circle that sent everyone home charged up and inspired.
Thank you for all who came and participated.
