Kindness Palooza festival promotes all-things ‘kind’, donations collected for those in need

SALISBURY, Md.- It’s World Kindness Day!

Salisbury celebrated Sunday afternoon with its Kindness Palooza Festival at the Riverwalk Amphitheater.

The festival included live music, food, lots of dancing, and a kindness activity at every table.

Local businesses and non-profits also provided information to attendees on services they offer.

The event also served as a donation drive aiming to give to those in need a helping hand ahead of the upcoming holiday season. “Whether it be socks, toothpaste, or can goods. We’re just grateful that we can use this event as a platform to help inspire our community to be kind,” SBY Kindness Commissioner Heather Brooks said.

“Kindness means that you think of other people beyond yourself, and you do for them what you can. If you see a problem, you help fix a problem. You find a solution and you work together with other people,” Kindness SBY Secretary Grace Foxwell-Murdock said.

American Idol Contestant Jay Copeland also stopped by and performed.

It’s also important to note that Salisbury was designated the first World Kindness USA city back in 2019.
