South Walton Turtle Watch and SWCC plan day of family fun

The South Walton Turtle Watch and South Walton Community Council are hosting Turtle Fest 2010 on May 1 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The festival will be held at the Gulf Place Town Center located at Scenic Hwy. 30A and CR 393 in Santa Rosa Beach.

Games, a puppet show, a turtle craw and booths dedicated to the education will be at the festival for children of all ages to enjoy. Children will have the opportunity to visit each booth and receive a stamp on their “Turtle Passport,” after receiving all the stamps they can go and collect a turtle safe flashlight.

The festivities will continue into the afternoon with The Forrest Williams band entertaining the crowd with their soulful rifts from Noon – 3 p.m. and then a turtle parade around the amphitheater.

Come turtle lovers, one and all and celebrate this precious creature who honors us with their presence and needs our protection. ::MAP::
