Sunrise celebrates Earth Day Festival
The City of Sunrise gets set to celebrate their annual Earth Day Festival with good music and good times, set for Saturday, April 9, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Sawgrass Sanctuary Park. This free event features a family-friendly mix of education and entertainment.
The festivities kick off at 11:15 a.m. with a special Tree Planting Ceremony in observance of Arbor Day. Afterwards, audiences can enjoy a round of live music from exciting local bands, including the high-energy funk and chill reggae of Bushwood.
The ever-popular Kids’ Korner will also feature children’s activities, bounce houses, face painting, arts and crafts and more. Participants will also find an array of handcrafted goods, fantastic food and beverage vendors, as well as information sessions and non-profit exhibitors to help you green your routine.
Also, in honor the day’s spirit of promoting sustainability, the first 1,500 people through the gates will receive a reusable shopping tote and a BPA-free water bottle – useful sustainability alternatives to the daily and excessive use of non-biodegradable plastics. The bottles can also be refilled throughout the day at the City’s complimentary water station.
The Earth Day Festival is sponsored by the City of Sunrise Utilities Department, All Service Refuse, and Baptist Health Urgent Care-Sawgrass, and presented in partnership with The Shark 104.3 FM. No coolers, glass bottles, pets or bicycles will be allowed in the park during the Festival. However, dedicated bicycle parking will be available.
