Join us at the kick-off event to celebrate peace and understanding at The International Day of Peace celebration on Friday, September 21st at 7:45 a.m. at the Peace Garden in Coral Springs, 2855 Coral Springs Drive, adjacent to the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.
Everyone is invited as City officials, students and local talent help us celebrate with music, art and the planting of Pinwheels for Peace. View the hand-crafted Peace Pole which was planted in the garden as a permanent symbol of our commitment to being an inclusive community. The beautiful copper Peace Pole was co- sponsored by the Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee, One Planet United, Inc, and the Coral Springs Chinese Cultural Association. A light breakfast will follow.
Later that evening, residents can enjoy a free musical concert featuring popular peace songs under the direction of Lou Piccinetti. The Peace in Music Concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the Coral Springs Charter School Auditorium, located at 3205 N. University Drive. The event is free and doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
The Coral Springs Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee and One Planet United, Inc. will be hosting the International Peace Weekend in a partnership effort.
“We are so fortunate to live in a city that sees the importance of celebrating the International Day of Peace”, says Jack Bloomfield, Executive Director of One Planet United, Inc. “When many cities and towns across the country and around the world are not yet even aware of this important day for humanity, the City of Coral Springs continues year after year to help make it visible to our community.”
Admission is free and families are encouraged to attend. For more information, call 954-344-1063.
