Admission is free.
Guests will enjoy crafts, refreshments, exhibitor booths and live musical entertainment. New booths this year include the Flagler County School Learn and Service Science Fair and Rymfire Elementary School’s flower pollination interactive program. The popular butterfly release will be held at 11 a.m.
You might also want to participate in this year’s 5K Root Run or One Mile Flutter Fun Run which will take place on the same morning at 8 a.m., in the park. You can register online here or in person at the Palm Coast Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Parkway.
The Flagler Home Builders Association will be holding free seminars at its booth at 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. to educate homeowners on hurricane protection techniques. The association will also have a contractor on hand to discuss potential insurance savings available for implementing the wind mitigation measures and answer any questions.
