Description: Join us at the kick-off event to celebrate peace and understanding at The International Day of Peace celebration on Friday, September 19 at 7:45 a.m. at the International Peace Garden, located at 2855 Coral Springs Drive, adjacent to the Coral Springs Center for the Arts. A light breakfast will follow.
Everyone is invited as City officials, students and local talent help us celebrate with music and art. This year, the community is invited to participate in our IMAGINE PEACE Wish Tree Project. Write down your peace wish on a tag and add it to our tree during the event or display your own Peace Tree (indoor or outdoor) at your school, house of worship or workplace during the month of September.
This event is free and families are encouraged to attend. For more information, call 954-344-1063.
