Get ready for some good, green fun!
The Town of Halifax is excited to announce plans for our 14th Annual Earth Day Extravaganza! The success of this event is credited largely to our sponsors, who lend their names, noteworthiness, community awareness, activities and financial support to the event.
As in the past, this year's fun-filled day will feature Earth Day themed activities, local farmers, crafters, organizations and food vendors. This year, we're adding a new way to engage businesses, organizations and families throughout our community with our "Think Outside the Trash" contest. Contestants will be challenged to create works of art utilizing discarded plastic materials. Upcycled artwork created during this initiative will be publicly displayed for our Earth Day celebration on April 23, 2022. See contest details below and download the entry form.

New this year! Think Outside the Trash Upcycled Art Contest
Bring awareness to the amount of plastic waste we create while transforming it into something beautiful! The Halifax Market Place invites individuals, families, and small groups to join us as we prepare for our Earth Day Extravaganza by participating in our first ever Think Outside the Trash Upcycled Art Contest. Upcycled artwork created during this initiative will be publicly displayed for our Earth Day celebration on April 23, 2022.
Entries must be made from at least 70% discarded plastic materials like drink bottles, tops, laundry detergent jugs, etc and be centered around a nature theme such as plants, animals, fish, insects, rivers and/or oceans. This Pinterest board has some fantastic ideas to get your creative juices flowing! Pieces can be 3D or mural style. Download the entry form here and find us on Facebook @HalifaxEarthDay for more details and inspiration as we get closer to the big day.
Artwork will be judged based on adherence to theme and materials, originality, craftsmanship, and use of colors and textures. Winners will be announced on Saturday, April 23 at 1pm at the Earth Day Extravaganza. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners in each participant category.
