Hi - we've been to GOTV a few times now - twice at the current location in CT and once here in NY. We have ALWAYS had an awesome time there. The variety of music is wonderful, but it's the PEEEEEOPLE who make it awesome! Everyone is very kid friendly, and there are loads of things for them to do. Beach, vibe wash, bubbles, drums, people watching (puppets, costumes etc.) it's like a great huge circus!
It's all but IN the city, the park is right along the Eastern edge, on the beach. There is even a beach stage that is free for Bridgeport residents, though they can not enter the other stage areas w/out tix/bracelet. There IS family camping, and RV camping too (separate). We bought tix this year, but can't go. If anyone wants to purchase our RV pass at cost ($200 for Thurs -> Sun), email me [email protected]
and we can talk. Our other tix are sold already.
I do highly recommend this event - the tunes, the peeps, the vibes are AWESOME! My kids are so sad we can't go (I am too, but the timing sucks for us this year).
