Admission is free for children ages two and under, $3 for juniors ages three to 17, $5 for adults ages 18 to 54, and $2 for seniors ages 55 and older.

This free family celebration includes free bingo sponsored by Humana Inc., traditional games, lawn games, Crazy Games, inflatable obstacle courses and bounce houses, face painting, a petting zoo, pony rides, approximately 20 food trucks, entertainers, and more. Gypsy Lane Band, South Florida’s variety party band, will be on stage playing favorite hits throughout the event. Attendees can also visit one of the many vendors on site, or give the gift of life by donating blood at OneBlood’s Big Red Bus.
Stick around for Wellington’s Fireworks Extravaganza, presented by Zambelli Fireworks International, beginning at 9:15 p.m. This spectacular display can be seen for miles around.
