Going 4 Green is a awesome festival going on in Oakland at the end of the month and I’ve got festival producer Kyion Williams here today to tell you all a little more about it. If you are looking for a fun free activity for every member of your family- this is it.

LC: Word on the street is that the first ever Going 4 Green Festival is going to attract over 40,000 people! What kind of events will be there? Can I get my eco-friendly Christmas shopping done early this year while eating delicious street food and movin’ & goovin’ to phat beats?

KW: Yes you can. yes you can. We will have live music, a kid-friendly zone with games and prizes, great treats to eat, educational speakers, and some great shopping opportunities. With all that going on, you will also have a great view of the water in Jack London Square, a prime area in Oakland. Oh and for the adults tasty margaritas will be served!

LC: Well, you can find me at JLS on September 25th & 26th! What time does it all go down? Is there an entrance fee?

KW: The festival will be 12 – 7PM  on Saturday the 25th and 12- 6PM on Sunday the 26th. Its free to get in the festival, but bring your wallets because you will find something you just have to have.

LC: What part of the weekend are you most ants-in-the-pants excited about?

KW: We are bringing back some throwback childhood games, and the adults are going to want in on it. I love seeing adults relax and get silly.

LC: I want Going 4 Green updates! Where can I go to hear the latest and greatest?
