Peace Day Returns at New Location
The 14th Southwest Florida Peace Day Celebration will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 19 at a new location, the Wa-Ka-Hatchee Park, in Fort Myers.

A new feature will be free crystal bowl therapy and performances throughout the day in the new Oasis of Peace Zone to contemplate and experience inner peace. Other attractions and activities include early morning yoga and qigong throughout the day, local vendors, unique artisans, nonprofits, live art, music, blood, food and pet food and supply drives, onsite service by Life Escape Counseling’s Charity Godfrey and other staff members, free reiki provided by Casa Shanti, free introductory acupuncture and kids’ activities, including rides.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket, yoga mat or chair at the return of this popular community event associated with the worldwide International Day of Peace held on September 21.
