The annual Hippie Festival Summer Solstice Celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., June 20, at the Intuitive Spiritual Center, in Fort Walton Beach. On this day of music, storytelling, poetry, singing and mingling, participants are encouraged to wear their best hippie threads and dreads and bring stories, poem, pictures, songs, guitars, drums, tambourines and a white T-shirt to tie-dye; or make a $10 love offering and the center will supply one.

The tie-dye workshop begins at 2 p.m., followed by a groovy threads contest at 4 p.m. Shintaedo dance, hula-hoop challenges, emotional release sessions, psychic readings and the John of God Light Bed are all highlights of the say’s festivities.
