Surrey celebrates Earth Day with new Live Green World

BC’s largest Earth Day celebration comes to Surrey Civic Plaza this Saturday … are you ready to party?

Hosted by the City of Surrey from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 13, the ninth annual Party for the Planet will fill the plaza with lots to see, do, hear and learn.

Brand new for the signature Surrey event is Live Green World, presented by TD and featuring environmental workshops, a sustainable marketplace, acoustic concert series and local vendors. Enjoy garden workshops, learn how to host a sustainable park event, discover the possibilities of meditation and lots more!

“We are very excited to present Live Green World at this year’s Party for the Planet, where attendees can learn how to live more sustainably through workshops and support local businesses in the environmental marketplace,” says Mayor Doug McCallum. “We invite residents and visitors to celebrate sustainable community growth, experience live entertainment for all ages, and discover new ways to decrease their environmental footprint.”

Here’s even more reasons to visit:

  1. Live the adventure: Head to the Adventure Zone to try the free zipline, scale the rock climbing wall and score at road hockey before refuelling at the onsite food trucks.
  2. Free succulents: Take home one of 1,000 complimentary succulents, then head to the tree and plant sale where you’ll find native trees for $20 each, and plants from $2 to $4.
  3. Entertaining ideas: Soulful singer Colin Bullock, indie pop duo Harlequin Gold and children’s performers Bobs & Lolo perform on the TD Main Stage, inside Council Chambers. Enjoy live music throughout the event, with a DJ in the Adventure Zone and acoustic performances in Live Green World and City Hall Atrium.
  4. Fun for the whole family: Additional festival attractions include a Surrey Parks display, environmental educational booths, a Library Stage featuring children’s performers, an Enviro-Bungee, meet and greets with Big Bird and Elmo, kids’ crafts and a variety of local vendors.

TD has been the presenting sponsor of Party for the Planet – B.C.’s largest Earth Day celebration – for almost a decade, notes Andy Cribb, Senior Vice President, TD Bank Group.

“TD has been committed to giving back to Surrey, through events like the annual TD Tree Days and through a contribution to the TD Nature Play area at Forsyth Park in Surrey City Centre. We look forward to celebrating Earth Day with the community.”
