Tybee Island Kite Festival 2016
11AM-2PM April 24 2016
Savannah Parkinson Support Group invites you to the 5th Annual Tybee Island Kite Festival on Sunday, April 24, 2016 from 11AM-2PM on North Beach, Tybee Is.
This year’s festival is sure fun for the entire family with live music, a kite making booth, caricatures of family and friends and face painting, all free to the public.
There will also be kite contests on the beach, with winners taking home new and decorative kites of their own.
Plastic Kites and a cup of North Beach Grill’s famous gumbo will be available for a $10 donation.
Because of construction in the North Beach Parking Lot, the festival has shifted to the North End of the parking lot, facing the Atlantic, between North Beach Grill and the Tybee Island Shrine Club.
Come early, since the parking lot fills quickly during April because of the warm weather and cool breezes.
Take a few minutes to wander through the booths, learning about a variety of movement disorders, such as Parkinson disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Essential Tremor. According to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, movement disorders affect more than 40 million Americans. These diseases are chronic, painful and debilitating, often leaving the person affected without the ability to control his/her movements.
Information will also be available for People with Parkinson disease in the Savannah/Chatham County/Low Country area who are interested in participating in GEM!, a unique and effective exercise program developed by WTOC Hometown Hero, Coach Michael Cohen. These classes are held twice weekly at the Anderson-Cohen Weightlifting Center. Participants are charged a nominal fee and all supplies are provided.
Any donations made during the 5th Annual Kite Festival will be directed toward the further growth and development of this amazing exercise program that encourages people with Parkinson disease and their caregivers to work side by side, fighting the debilitating effects this disease.
Fun for the whole family. For more info, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 912-376-9833,
