This year’s festival had unprecedented buzz, with guests flying in from as far as Brazil and France to attend! Prospect Park was a sea of diverse beauty where people of every shade, shape and size came together to celebrate what makes us naturally beautiful

With everything from celebrity stylists and influencers, to live demonstrations and amazing giveaways, there were plenty of activities for attendees to enjoy throughout the day. Below are a few snapshots of the activities that made this year’s festival so much fun!
