Eighth Annual SanTree Fest This Saturday

Monday, April 22, 2013

Santee’s homegrown celebration of Arbor Day and Earth Day is back for an eighth year in a new daylong format with more booths, free activities, and entertainment.
SanTree Fest is a day for volunteers to help beautify a riverfront park, as well as an opportunity for families to enjoy a day of free entertainment while learning how to preserve the environment.

The event will be held  Saturday, April 27th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Town Center Community Park East, 550 Park Center Drive.
At 9 a.m., early arrivals will be rewarded with a chance to experience the spectacle of a recycled fire truck blasting streams of Dr. Bronner’s organic soap foam into the crowd.

A mobile water-conservation science lab sponsored by Padre Dam Municipal Water District will also be at the park, along with more than 40 other vendor booths.  All activities are free and food will be available for purchase.
There will also be interactive dance routines in conjunction with National Dance Week and continuous live musical entertainment, including performances by Box Canyon, Sarah Black, and Ben Owens.

A free Kids Zone will offer crafts, a lady bug release, and games and activities including inflatables.
Volunteers at the event will have the opportunity to clean up the shoreline along the San Diego River or help plant trees following a 10 a.m. ceremony led by Mayor Randy Voepel, who will honor the US. Marine units the city has adopted.

Those interested in volunteering need to fill out a waiver, which is available at the link below.

SanTree Fest is sponsored by the city of Santee, Waste Management Inc., and  McWire Electric.
Waste Management will also be hosting a booth to accept household batteries for proper disposal and teach participants about recycling in Santee.
