Peace Day Block Party in Downtown Fort Myers
As its most recent venue Wa-Ke-Hatchee Park is not yet available for hosting events following Hurricane Ian, the 16th annual Southwest Florida Peace Day Celebration honoring the International Day of Peace will take the form of a block party from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 24 along Cottage Street, surrounding CasaShanti, in downtown Fort Myers. With the theme Community: Flow with It! Grow with It!, the free, fun, family and pet-friendly event will feature fun activities, vendor and artisan booths and other opportunities to connect with the community.
There will be delicious vegetarian, vegan, omnivore and other food; live music and DJs hosted by Jenni B, of All Smiles Entertainment, plus other entertainment such as yoga, tai chi, massage, reiki and crystal bowl sound baths; area nonprofit organizations; a butterfly tent and bounce house, along with other kids’ recreational and artistic activities such as face painting and giveaways; a singalong session conducted by Family Music Time and more. Attendees can also donate food and supplies for abuse and counseling treatment, along with blood.
