FREE PRESS SUMMER FEST
AUGUST 8TH AND 9TH AT ELEANOR TINSLEY PARK
12PM TO 10PM

Free Press Houston is proud to announce the 2009 Free Press Summer Fest. This music and arts festival will be held August 8th and 9th at Buffalo Bayou's Eleanor Tinsley Park and will feature more than 40+ national and local musical performers, visual arts, and games. Confirmed to headline are BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE, OF MONTREAL, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, THE SWORD, WHAT MADE MILWAUKEE FAMOUS, OCTOPUS PROJECT. The park will host 2 stages, dozens of local artist booths, a craft beer garden, games, and several 'cooling elements' such as a misting tent to help attendees stage cool in the hot sun. Free Press Houston intends to make this greener than your average festival with a recycling program, carbon off-set credits, and a partnership with the Texas Campaign for the Environment. Participants are encouraged to wear bathing suits and loose fitting clothing. Free water will be available on site. Additionally, a portion of proceeds will go to Project Row Houses which is a community non-profit that is responsible for restoration restoration, art, and social activism in Houston's Third Ward since 1991. Entry cost for the event is only 7 dollars per day via advanced ticket sales at www.freepresssummerfest.com. For more info contact Omar Afra at editors@freepresshouston.com. For vending info contact Don Schwarzkopf at EWMedia@swbell.net.

Tickets available at www.freepresssummerfest.com and www.pegstar.net
