Fire Fest 2020 is coming up
VENICE — Fire Fest provides a firsthand look at how prescribed burns protect area communities from wildfires as well as maintain Florida’s natural ecosystems for present and future generations.
A part of Prescribed Fire Awareness Week, Fire Fest is a fun opportunity for the whole family to learn how fire is used carefully and effectively on our natural lands, right here in Sarasota County.
The event includes prescribed burn demonstrations; a game zone for children; guided nature walks; free food; and raffle prizes.
Fire Fest 2020 is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Jan. 25, at the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial Reserve, 1800 Mabry Carlton Parkway, Venice.
