Funded in part by grants from The Foundation for Enhancing Communities and the Lebanon County Commissioners, the festival showcased a vibrant array of flow art performances, spanning from hula hoop and taekwondo to kung fu and contact juggling. Performers from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region dazzled festival-goers, with each act followed by a complimentary beginner workshop.

DJ Chord & Friends kept the energy high with a pulsating dance music soundtrack, encouraging attendees to participate in free flow and spinning. N.I.C.K. Services further complemented the atmosphere with super bubbles and offered flow prop loans at no charge.
