It seems like a new festival pops up in this town every other day. But, who could hate on that if all festivals where as rad and consciousness expanding as the first annual Lighten Up: A Celebration of Conscious Art and Community? This unique one-day festival will provide contemplative opportunities out the wazoo — we’re talking yoga and meditation workshops, healing group meditative experiences, and that type of goodness — but we’re just as excited about the stellar musical lineup, which features local heavies Dance Like Robots, Verisimilitude, Aliens WITH Halos and Krishna Monks, along with a mind-expanding performance from the American Indians in Texas drum group. In addition to the peace vibes, the great location (seriously, have you checked out how the Woodlawn Lake area is looking these days?), and the stellar music, this family-friendly event will also feature various holistic vendors, healthy food and live art. Free, 4-11pm Sat, Woodlawn Casting Pond and Park, 138 S Josephine Tobin Drive, facebook.com.
