Celebrate Earth On May 3
The Rockaway Waterfront Alliance will be holding a day of family fun for its 8th Annual Earth Day Festival.
On Saturday, May 3 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., all are invited to Firehouse 59 on Beach 59th Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard for an afternoon full of free activities and programs in celebration of Earth.
There will be live music by Il Collectivo, kite-making, recycling Olympics, mock dolphin rescue, plantings, composting, face painting, water testing, raptor demonstration, firehouse safety obstacle course, surf fishing, and art-related booths to learn how better to appreciate and conserve the earth's resources.
All of the activities are free and are intended to raise awareness of the natural resources along the Rockaway shoreline.
