2021 Earth Day Recap

A Huge Thank You to all our Friends who helped celebrate Earth Day Bay County 2022.

Without the support from all our participants and the community we would have never made this celebration happen.

Thank You to the Friends of St. Andrew Bay (BEST) for hosting/sponsoring this event for more years than we can remember. Larry Hawks was the energy that helped to make for a very successful event.

Looking forward to giving it another try in 2023 if the City will allow us the share the park with the St. Andrews Market, which is relocating to the park on May 7, 2022.

2019 Earth Day Recap

Earth Day Bay County

Our 15th Annual Earth Day Bay County Celebration took place
Saturday, April 20, 2019
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
McKenzie Park [map & directions]
Downtown Panama City, Florida

Events and things to do in Panama City FL in April!

Thank You for participating in the 2019 Earth Day Bay County, our 15th consecutive year.

The theme of rejuvenation and recovery was apparent simply by looking at the many Oaks trees that were trying their best to provide shade in spite of the windy conditions and a little rain early on. My health, unfortunately, kept me at my booth most of the day since I was avoiding spreading my chest cold, but people were great, especially all the old friends who came out, once the weather improved.

Thanks to BEST, Inc., once again for being our host sponsor along with E & E and the Jelks Foundation. And a big thank you to all the entertainers who provided all of us with an excellent day of sweet sounds and beautiful people. Thank You All. Namaste
