On Sunday, May 7th, from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM, the bridge connecting Holyoke and South Hadley on Rt. 116, will be the venue for the very first River Roll and Stroll Street Festival. A free event for all ages.
We talked with Sean Condon, organizer, and creator of this idea of meeting at the bridge for family activities, including music, games, parades, food, and the opportunity to enjoy the view from the bridge. You will know how this event was designed, and what are the activities planned.
This is the official map and list of events and scheduled across the bridge.
The Children of the Wild return to Holyoke to perform “The Wastelands”. An immersive Opera inspired by Dante’s Purgatorio, that engages the community with kinesthetic poetry, music, and the city as the stage. This Opera is scheduled for May 5th, 6th, and 7th at the Holyoke Creative Arts Center, on 384 Dwight Street, Holyoke, MA. This is a FREE event for the community.

As a joint effort to build an audio archive of events of social and cultural relevance for our history and communities, El Sol Latino, a local independent newspaper, The Holyoke Public Library and radioplasma, documented this lecture to make it available to the public for future reference. Listen to the entire presentation of “Cien Años de Feminismos Dominicanos”, by Ginetta Candelario, Ph.D. at the City University of New York. This is a collection of primary documents related to the birth and development of feminism in the Dominican Republic.
