While The Arts & Ideas Festival is taking place you can wander the New Haven Green and be surprised by new sounds and scenes.

Today, Circa ’95 took the stage to deliver some feel good hip-hop, inspired by the blending of culture. In between performances, the duo stopped to share positive messages with the crowd, encouraging people to release fear and realize the things that inspire them the most and build their lives around it.

You never know what you’ll see, like a ballerina posing by the fountain.


Shortly after, in the Family Tent, The Bossy Frog Band had kids screaming about ice cream, monkeys, bugs, and feelings.

But for an overall view of the Arts & Ideas scene on the Green you have to be looking from where this guy was sitting.
