High Hopes Brings Interactive Mural to Pilgrimage

High Hopes Development Center will have an on-site display in the Lil’ Pilgrims Family Stage area at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival this September. The display will feature an interactive mural, a photo booth and giveaways.

“We’re excited to offer a family-friendly experience for children attending Pilgrimage,” said Gail Powell, High Hopes Executive Director. “With families visiting from across the country, we look forward to sharing our passion for inclusivity and support for children with and without disabilities.”

The High Hopes mural, created by Kevin Hyche, will feature a colorful interpretation of the High Hopes hot air balloon logo. High Hopes will also display a Simple Booth photobooth and will provide kid-friendly giveaways to concertgoers who visit the Lil’ Pilgrims Family Stage, an engaging and entertaining area featuring activities and performances for children. 

“High Hopes values community, diversity and inclusivity, which align perfectly with the Pilgrimage experience,” said Kevin Griffin, Pilgrimage Festival co-founder and Better Than Ezra lead singer. “We’re honored to partner with High Hopes as they continue to make a difference for families across Tennessee.”

High Hopes was named as a charitable partner of Pilgrimage Festival last year. The festival, celebrating its fifth year, will be held on Sept. 21-22 at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, Tennessee, just south of Nashville. The 2019 heavy-hitting lineup includes Foo Fighters, The Killers, Keith Urban, Leon Bridges, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Head and the Heart, +LIVE+, Jenny Lewis, Lauren Daigle and more.
