71st Annual Opening of the Beaches Parade
WHEN: Saturday, April 30th from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: Jacksonville Beach
We are partnering with the First Coast Surfrider Foundation to participate in the 71st annual Opening of the Beaches Parade. In support of the Rise Above Plastics campaign and our joint efforts to keep plastics out of the oceans and off our beaches, Native Sun will be handing out FREE reusable grocery bags along the parade route!
We've recently removed single-use grocery bags from our stores and encourage you to participate in our "Take a Bag, Leave a Bag" program that makes donated reusable bags and recycled cardboard boxes available at the registers in each store.
The parade route will travel North on 2nd St. from Beach Blvd to 11th Avenue North, East to 1st St., and then South on 1st St. Back to Beach Blvd. Come out to this year's parade and you might just catch a glimpse of a frightening (but in an environmental sort-of way) Bag Monster!
