It was peace and love in the parking lot for the 226 people who attended “Woodstock Lovin” put on by the Snowbird Plus Club at Huntington Pointe in Delray Beach.
According to co-organizer Esley Isseks, the club, which plans a big event every year, decided on the theme because “1969 was a very good year for lots of us.”
“Because of COVID and the renovation of our clubhouse, we decided to present our extravaganza in the parking lot,” said Isseks who led the effort alongside Sharon Dektor and Michael Levine, the club’s president.
Constructed by the group’s “Build-A-Boyz,” a cardboard Love Bus decorated with photos of Woodstock performers and a launchpad in honor of the first trip to the moon set the scene for the revelers dressed in tie-dye attire.
Everyone received headbands and peace sign necklaces while the “Glitter Girls” shared the “flower power” by handing out paper flowers to the women.
They danced the night away to music from DJ Michael Rappazelli while the original Woodstock movie played on an inflatable screen.
“We were moving and grooving for many hours,” Isseks said, adding they even baked their own version of Alice B. Toklas brownies — minus the marijuana.
