While were still celebrating the death of Osama bin Laden as if it were a national holiday, we might want to think about how things were done back in the 60s. In those days, people went around saying things like make love not war and groovy. Those against war staged love-ins where theyd play and listen to music, read poetry, and take part in peaceful demonstrations. In Miami, Greynolds Park was a favorite spot for these gatherings. Almost a half-century later, somebody had the good sense to revive these events. We sure could use the good vibes.
The eighth annual Greynolds Park Love-In takes place Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. If bloodlust recently got the best of you, make up for it by kicking back and chilling with family and friends. Therell be a costume contest (break out the dusty tie-dyes or make them there), hula-hoop contests, classic cars, and 60s-style vendors with food and drink. And if you still cant feel the love, some old-school tunes should do the trick. Jefferson Starship, featuring members of the original Jefferson Airplane that opened at Woodstock, is the headliner. The group will play some of its best songs, including Somebody to Love, Jane, White Rabbit, and Miracles.
