Delray Play Day 2019

The 2nd Annual Celebration of Play was on October 13, 2019 at Old School Square in Delray Beach.

The kick-off to the second year of the Sunflower Play Initiative was a playful celebration! Events included free “play” workshops for parents and educators and a super-sized Pop-Up Build and Play event on the lawn! Children and parents built everything from trains to pizza ovens to robots and more.
