Think you need to secure a babysitter before heading out to a summer music festival? Not if it's Big Tiny Love. The lakeside fest for families, launched last year by local eatery the Skinny Pancake, features kids' entertainers — including Linda "Tickle Belly" Bassick, Ukulele Kids with Joe Beaird, the Hokum Brothers, and headliner Mister Chris and Friends — at the Burlington Waterfront on Sunday, July 28. Though the event is billed as a kid-focused companion to the four-day Lake Champlain Maritime Festival that runs from July 25-28, there's plenty of fun for the grown-ups, too. Enjoy crepes from the Skinny Pancake, a Fiddlehead Brewing beer tent and Pingala Café's Carrot Cart (the vegan answer to the hot dog stand). Family yoga with Sangha Studio; make-your-own granola with City Market, Onion River Co-op; kids' activities with Wildflowers Studio; a SunCommon bouncy house and a performance by Modern Times Theater round out the day. Best of all: admission is free.

Big Tiny Love: A Festival for Kids takes place at Waterfront Park in Burlington from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 28. A portion of vendors' proceeds benefits University of Vermont Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
