Salt Springs Celebration caps off summer
Every Saturday of Labor Day weekend the Friends of Salt Springs Park provide an afternoon of free music, activities for all ages, hikes and demonstrations, displays and exhibits, and vendors.
Stop by Saturday, Sept. 1 to see what’s new in the past year, and enjoy some outdoor downtime with friends and family. It’s also the Friends annual fundraiser, so you can support the group’s work at the park by purchasing some lunch and items in our gift shop, joining in the silent auction, and becoming a member.
