This annual event is celebrating its 24th year at The Landing and features booths of educational and interactive displays, live entertainment throughout the day on the main stage, giveaways and more. A children’s stage is located on the West end, offering a variety of kid-friendly, hands-on displays. The arts and crafts and activity tables allow children to create dozens of art projects and crafts, all made from recycled and reusable materials. Some of this year’s crafts include Earth Day binders, book marks, toss and catch game, friendships bracelets and more. Patrons can also enjoy samples from local organic stores and restaurants, learn about manatees in the manatee obstacle course and have their face painted.
