Not everyone will be able to do what these folks in the above photo are doing at this year's Full Bloom Wellness Festival, but there will be plenty to see and do for both adults and kids at this year's event.

The Fourth Annual Full Bloom Wellness Festival is planned for Sunday, June 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Cushman Park in Fairhaven. Admission is free.

The festival is sponsored by Soulflower Yoga and Wellness Center in Fairhaven. Soulflower's Sam Dunga and Eric Britto of TrueBounce, Inc. visited Townsquare Sunday to get the word out about this year's festival.

"The festival is really all about promoting local small businesses, supporting each other, giving back to the community and supporting charities around us," Dunga said.

This year's event includes a full live music lineup, with a dozen performers scheduled to entertain from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be yoga classes, a reptile show, some craft vendors, games for kids and food trucks.

Eric Britto and his TrueBounce team will unveil an anti-bullying program, followed by three-man basketball tournaments at Cushman Park, on newly painted courts with new backboards.

He's also introducing a new type of game.

"It's a reverse quick-action game," Britto said. "The closer you are to the basket, the more points you get. If you are far away from the hoop, the less points you get. We want kids to take the ball to the basket, and all the while offering positive reinforcement about sportsmanship."

This year's Full Bloom Festival will support Gifts to Give of New Bedford. Those coming to the festival are urged to bring gently used clothing to be placed in the Gifts to Give trailer. Dunga said there's a real need for clothing for infants and young children, and back-to-school supplies.
