They were promoting it all week in the UMass Campus Center.
Friday afternoon when I passed by they were setting up the stage.
Here's what it looked like when the crowd showed up on Saturday, as captured by Larry Kelley.
The occasion was the annual Extravaganja Marijuana Legalization rally, which this year was expanded into a two-day affair. Here's a picture of local libertarian leader Terry Franklin (center) with two of the organizers of the event.
The event attracts a lot of vendors, such as this mobile Jamaican restaurant.
The Extravaganja always brings out the seldom seen freaks from the hilltowns, who leave their woodland hideaways to come into town for a day of revelry and then return to the forest to resume their mushroom meditations.
Unfortunately my camera memory was almost full, so I only got 23 seconds worth of video:
