“It is such an incredible thing to see so many people come out year after year to help people out,” Ezra said. “The day is filled with music and celebration. The mission of The Ramble is to let people know that they can come out and that there are tons of ways that they can activate and be connected to their communities.”
Last year’s Ramble raised money to build a play structure at Lynn’s Henry Avenue Park. Ezra and his band were able to see their efforts pay off when they played the build day back in June.
“That was so great to be a part of,” Ezra said. “The community that have rallied around the project and has been making it happen were all there. They are really inspiring folks. We were able to make an impact for families who are right in our backyard.”
This year’s Ramble will also be rolling buses to the event from several locations, including Boston; Durham, N.H.; Portland, Maine; Hartford, Conn.; and Smithfield, R.I. Those who can’t make it, however, can watch the show live at getrambled.com.
“We have fans coming in from all over New England for this thing,” Ezra said. “And the reason why we are at Salisbury Beach is because it is this beautiful, perfect spot for us.
“The town of Salisbury really supports us. After the festival, they set off a bunch of fireworks for everybody to watch. It’s going to be a really great, great day.”
