For nearly two decades, the East Side’s annual Summer Soulstice Music Festival has marked the first day of summer with music, food, drinks, and that one guy who always shows up carrying a giant lizard. (Actually, we haven’t seen that guy in a while. Is he still around?) On Saturday, June 22, from noon until midnight on East North Avenue (between Oakland and Prospect Avenues, and on Murray Avenue), the fest will return for its 19th installment. (Check out our pictures from last year’s installment.)
