Vets organize music festival to help VA Hospital

A local family is organizing a music and arts festival that benefits veterans in need of proper medical treatment.

The Red Marines Music & Art Festival, which will take place in La Honda Sept. 26-28, was started five years ago by Pacifica resident Eugene Tarasov who wanted to celebrate the safe return of his two younger brothers from Iraq.

After their return, brothers Valentin and Mark Tarasov visited the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center and realized that other veterans could not receive proper care because the hospital was underfunded. This year’s festival will benefit the San Francisco VA Medical Center.

Red Marines features three days and two nights of live and electronic music with Eric McFadden Trio, Penta, Mobius, Parus, Fractal Cowboys, and other DJ’s and bands from as far away as Russia. The guests can also enjoy a photo exhibit, fire dancers, flamenco workshops, arts and crafts installations, food, and a swimming pool.

The festival is held on the grounds of OVY Camp near La Honda, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains between Silicon Valley and the Pacific coast. Tickets are $60.

For information, tickets, and a map to the “leave no trace” festival, visit www.redmarines.com.
