Aiken Unity Day Festival
ASWCD staff had a blast participating in the second annual Aiken Unity Day Festival at Perry Memorial Park. On Saturday July 22, over 1500 people came together to apart of this festival. The free one-day music and fun festival is aimed at uniting Aiken's communities with a special focus on bridging the gap between children and local law enforcement. It included live music, a 2,000 backpack giveaway, more than 50 vendors (including ASWCD), and thousands of dollars in prizes and fun for all ages. Students, families, and residents that stopped by our booth learned about environmental education programs provided by the district and environmental curricula that can be used by all teachers in all classrooms here in Aiken County. Those who stopped by where also encouraged to participate in the activity "The Incredible Journey", that simulates waters movement through the water cycle, they also took home a fancy beaded bracelet made during the activity.
ASWCD was happy to support such a great cause in our community!
