Homegrown Festival brought a solid crowd to Main Street Garden Park on a perfect Saturday. That crowd was unlike your typical concert-going group. Even for a music festival, there were a disproportionate number of kids in attendance. That's by design: Those under 10 got in for free and the day was built to be family friendly. There park is equipped with a fountain and playground, and Homegrown had face painting and magic shows set up as well. We talked to a few of the festival's young attendees (after getting permission from their parents) about what they saw and liked most.
