JUPITER, Fla. - It's a double celebration Saturday, April 27th in Jupiter.
In honor of Earth Day and the completion of the Riverwalk, the Town of Jupiter will host an EcoFest at the Riverwalk from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Organizers are inviting everyone to enjoy a free family event with lots of live music and kids activities. The event will focus on recycling and earth-friendly food and crafts. Parking is free. Admission is free.
If you get there an hour early, at 10 a.m., at the corner of A1A and Ocean Way, you can watch the unveiling of a new sign by Mayor Karen Golonka, marking the start point of the Riverwalk. Then you can follow the mayor and others on a ceremonial stroll for two miles along the Intracoastal Waterway to the Riverwalk Events Plaza. At 11, the mayor will present a proclamation from the Town of Jupiter recognizing the completion of this portion of the Riverwalk.
Then stay for the music of The Garbage Men, starting at 11:15. These are five high-schoolers from Sarasota who formed a band and made their own instruments from garbage and recycled materials. Hence, the name! They perform regularly at festivals and charity events.
Non-profit organizations will provide information on recycling, water, plants, animals and health.
Local vendors will be selling their earth-friendly wares and food vendors will be selling a variety of items to eat.
