Amazing Bees Festival Coming to Boca Raton in Fall 2018
Festival to Offer Family Fun and Fitness While Highlighting Importance of Pollinators
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOCA RATON, Fla., February 19, 2018 — The Amazing Bees Festival is the latest family event scheduled in Boca Raton for 2018, and it’s designed to give families of children ages two to 12 something to do together in October that goes beyond screen time.
The festival will celebrate the importance of nature’s pollinators, particularly the bees that have been in danger in recent years. Festival organizers seek to educate families about how they can support bees by making eco-friendly choices to help them thrive.
The festival includes a show that follows the adventures of King Buzz, Queen Honey, Prince Bob Bee and Princess Debbee as they search for fresh nectar and brave a variety of hardships to survive. Families are encouraged to get up and move to the music during the performance.
The event will be hosted by local LMSW and Fitness Instructor Regina M. Rossi, who teaches Zumba and Zumbini to Floridians of all ages. Zumba is a popular aerobics exercise program based on Latin-American dance. Zumbini is an early childhood version of the exercise in which parents interact with children from infancy through age four to exercise and learn together.
“I am very excited to be working on the Amazing Bees Festival project as I love bringing people, families and communities together,” said Rossi. “I believe in a healthy lifestyle by moving your body, using your brain and learning about nature and its impact on our earth, starting right where we live!”
Scheduled activities include Zumbini, Zumba Kids, kids’ yoga, Zumba and Capoeira, a form of martial arts from Brazil. Families will also be able to participate in other interactive games, including giant Jenga, giant Bubbles and a classic bean bag toss. Face painting, clowns and plenty of arts and crafts will also be available.
The Amazing Bees Festival seeks to get people of all ages interacting with each other. “From the minute you arrive you will be moving like ‘busy bees,’ having a large variety of activities to choose and participate in as a family,” said Rossi.
The Amazing Bees Festival is scheduled for October 20 at Mizner Park. Tickets start at $15 and are available online through Universe.com.
