If you’re attending with children, check out the Family Programming at WOW Festival:

Fun fact! Blindspot Collective’s salty water, uses largescale puppets to weave music, movement, spoken testimony and poetry (with contributions from local community members, including the child of a member of the Navy) to explore our city’s history and connection to the sea.
