Inexpensive, Green Fun to Have With Your Family This Weekend
Five things you can do with your family this weekend.
1) There’s a vendor with tasty, gluten-free cinnamon crackers at the Green Market. He was there yesterday and he told Katie from Patch that he'd be there today. Katie is hoping she'll find him again so she can purchase some of his tasty gluten-free treats. If you find him, let us know what you think of the cinnamon crackers! Vendors start around 8 a.m.
2) The Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Breakfast and March kicks off Diversity Week. Breakfast starts at the MLK Jr. Recreation Center at 8:30 a.m. Winners of the Dunedin Public Library’s essay contest will be announced. Participants march to Pioneer Park starting at 10 a.m., where there'll be performances by some of Dunedin's very talented choirs and Dunedin High School’s step team. We've got a camera crew covering this event, so be sure to swing by and say "hi!"
3) If you were at the 2nd Friday Wine/Walk event last night, you may have already gotten to swing by the new exhibit at the Stirling Art Studios & Gallery. Those who didn't should check out the Potter’s Guild Exhibit. The sale will continue Saturday noon to 3 p.m.. Exhibit will be up the month of January. Tell them Patch sent ya! *wink, wink*
4) Looking for something inexpensive to do with the kids? You can always raise their green consciousness and make an event out of recycling. Teach the them how to separate plastics, paper and aluminium and then ride down to your nearest recycle depository. The city has two near you:
- Highlander Park, 903 Michigan Blvd., and
- Lake Haven Recycling Center, 810 Lake Haven Road, behind the Solid Waste building
It's a hands-on experience that you can repeat every time your recycle box gets full.
5) Take advantage of the sunny weather and do something outside. Rent some bikes and ride Pinellas Trail, or buy a day pass for $4.50 and ride the Jolley Trolley to Tarpon Springs and back.
