  • Mike Barger ran towards the main stage at the Firefly Music Festival Sunday.
    He was wearing jeans, but over those, he sported a multi-colored, pastel toned, fairy-costume- styled skirt.
    The Pittsburgh, Pa. man wasn’t the only one at the three-day event, dubbed the east coast’s premiere music festival, to stand out though.
    Unique fashions could be spotted all across the campgrounds at the Firefly Music Festival.
    While some women stuck to skirts and bikini tops, others clad themselves in vintage clothing – flowing dresses, colorful tops and cut offs.
    Alicia Hecker mixed things up though.
    The Washington D.C. woman, who originally hails from California, dressed herself in a polka-dot bikini top and a mesh skirt – the same material as Mike Barger’s – but shorter, and black.
    University of Delaware student Joe “Green Man” Bucci was another fan to make an impression.
    Bucci wore a green suit, covering his entire body, including his face.
    Other festival goers flocked towards him to pose in pictures, screaming to their friends, “I want a picture with the Green Man!”
    At the foot of The Porch as Mariachi El Bronx played, fans wearing Native American headdresses sang along to the lyrics.
    They weren’t the only ones to wear these though.
    As music played at the main stage, a man in a headdress ran through the crowd with a bubble-blowing machine, spraying other happy fans with the soapy substance.
    Another man, who was unable to give his name, wore orange, cloth overalls, exposing his colorful underpants.
    Others wore far less.
    Whatever the case though, fans echoed that they liked the vibes, the environment and the music.
    Nicole Sidor and Benjamen Miller came down from Boston, Mass., where they go to college.
    “We drove,” Sidor said Sunday. “And we have a class tomorrow that we have to be back for.”
    The thought of the nightlong drive didn’t damper their spirits though.
    They just kept on dancing.
