The Earth Day festival will take place on April 20
The Earth Day Festival is finally back after a two-year hiatus. It’s happening from 4-7pm on Wednesday April 20 at Tattnall Square Park. It’s a family event for all ages, and everyone is encouraged to attend. Click here for the event page on Facebook.
“We are so excited to finally bring this festival back after being stalled by the pandemic,” said festival coordinator Rachel Gambill. “Earth Day of course means taking care of our community and our planet, but it also means taking care of ourselves physically and mentally so that we can be better stewards of our planet. We look forward to a day of fun for our families!”
The Mulberry Market will be set up, featuring local vendors of fresh produce and other artisan products. Throughout the day there will be giveaways of bikes, fitness and wellness activities, free t-shirts for kids who complete Kids Zone activities, a free game of pickleball at the Tattnall Square Tennis and Pickleball Center, live music from the Dubshak Reggae Band and local animal bands will have friendly creatures for everyone to meet. Educational vendors will also be set up so that we can learn about the various green initiatives in our community.
