City of Goshen to participate in May First Friday Green Day Celebration

The City of Goshen Environmental Resilience Department is partnering with Downtown Goshen to host May’s First Friday Green Day Celebration on Friday, May 3. The event, centered on the courthouse lawn, will feature activities and educational tables from city departments, partners, and local businesses.

“We’re excited to once again be partnering with Downtown Goshen Inc. to celebrate Arbor Day at May First Fridays and provide family-friendly activities and environmental education,” said Aaron Sawatsky-Kingsley, Director of the Goshen Environmental Resilience Department.

The Goshen Environmental Resilience Department will host activities, including tree and t-shirt giveaways, a career and information table, and a tree-planting learning session.

Other activities include tree climbing for kids, tree art, face painting, live animals, a magic show, an electric vehicle demonstration, and live music from Goshen Elementary School choirs, Nayo Ulloa, and Shiny Shiny Black.

The event will last from 5 to 9 p.m. in Downtown Goshen. The City’s AmeriCorps volunteers will provide a bike valet service for those who prefer to bike to the event instead of driving.
