Wellington Celebrates Earth Day & Arbor Day this Weekend

Enjoy a free day of fun and learning at Wellington’s Earth Day and Arbor Day Celebration, at the Wellington Amphitheater (12100 Forest Hill Boulevard), on Saturday, April 21st, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The event features more than 20 local vendors, earth-friendly products and demonstrations, free seedlings, give-a-ways, face painting, food trucks, a coloring mural, kids’ activities, and more. See a demonstration of proper tree pruning techniques, and enter a free raffle for a tree in a 15-gallon container. Children will also enjoy meeting Smokey the Bear and learning about recycling, composting, and respecting the Earth. 

Visitors may also stop by booths highlighting the Wellington Garden Club, the Wellington Art Society, and Wellington’s Tree Board. This year, join the Village of Wellington Council as they plant a Bald Cypress Tree, provided by the Rotary Club of Wellington, in honor of Arbor Day. 

Attendees are invited to remain at the Wellington Amphitheater for a Fleetwood Mac Tribute by Dreams: Crystal Visions of Fleetwood Mac, immediately following the Earth Day festivities. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and guests are encouraged to bring their own seating.
