It’s that time of year again. San Jose’s one of a kind soccer and music festival is ready to celebrate its second year and everyone is still invited to join the festivities free of charge. Vibe will be held at the PAL stadium in East San Jose on August 3 from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

The community can expect fun, healthy activities for kids and adults.  The festival will showcase music from the area and food that will help make the event vibrant along with opportunities to play soccer. Vibe is not just for soccer players, but soccer enthusiasts and supporters along with music lovers.  “What better way to spend a Saturday morning or afternoon and within a healthy environment, walking, running or exercising at PAL Stadium,” said RJ Castro, director of Vibe.  “Families can attend and use the opportunity to get the kids and adults out of the house to play soccer or watch and listen to music.”

Those individuals that have never played soccer are welcome to attend and try the target goal shot contest.  The public can bring the family and listen to some good music and enjoy the food and atmosphere in a community-building setting.  It’s an opportunity for the general public who are not usually soccer enthusiasts to learn a new activity and become future soccer members or soccer fans.

“We’re blending the newer sound of what young people are listening to on today’s radio with Regional Norteño music, which resonates with residents of the Story Road community,” said Castro.

This year’s opening act will be Riff Raff Giraffe, followed by Azteca Negro, Soule Faction, Los Cadetes de Linares de Rosendo Cantú, and lastly, Los Orginales Sagitarios.

People can expect the same setup as last year with registration at 8:30AM and soccer games starting at 9:00AM.  This year they added a twist to the event by involving the Tamale Festival, having Vibe kick off the Story Road Tamale Festival into the summer 2014.

This will be an opportunity for the organizing committee to let the community know that they will be brining back the infamous Story Road Tamale Festival at Emma Prusch Park.
