Backpack Music Festival

Every year the hubs and i make it a point to attend the Backpack Music Festival in Detroit. 
This year it was on the amazing Belle Isle. ((one of our favorite spots to drive around with coffee in hand))
The Backpack Music Festival is a charity that provides backpacks and various school supplies to families in need in the Detroit area. They "showcase, promote, and celebrate the academic advancement of Detroit youth by insuring that they have the basic supplies needed to succeed in the classroom."
Admission for this festival is a brand new backpack filled with some basic school supplies.
This year, we brought three ((the hubs picked them out & he did a great job!))
This year we took little Mars and she LOVED it!
We danced, she got her face painted, we danced some more...and it was all for a GREAT cause!

Daddy was wearing Mars as a backpack on the way to the fest.

Mars getting her Hello Kitty face paint on.

Mars finally got to meet one of my favorite ladies in Detroit :: Grandma Techno ::

Mars met a dancing buddy :) 
:: The girl in the back playing the cello let Mars play with her too ::
(( I was too busy enjoying every second of that to remember to get photos! Gah! ))

Hope you enjoyed the photos :)
I really wish I would have gotten a ton more! (( especially of all the incredible djs and musicians that participated! )) Next year!
