Goodwill-Suncoast recently announced that it will join Wells Fargo in sponsoring the second annual Hippie Dash in Gulfport, Fla., which will offer participants three days of peace and music starting April 1.
The St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce said the sponsors want to bring back the days and good vibes of 1969's Woodstock. Among the events are a Hippie Dash 5K, 3.1 Miles of Peace, Love & Goodwill, a Flower Child Fun Run for little hippies and a laid-back, one-mile Walk, Woof & Roll for walkers, dogs and strollers.
The inaugural Hippie Dash in 2016 was a success with more than 800 hippies descending upon downtown Gulfport, the St. Petersburg Chamber said.
The events will begin at 8 a.m. in Gulfport's waterfront district. A disc jockey will play music from the era and participants will receive a shirt.
