The event will feature live entertainment from local bands including United By Grace and The Prescriptions;free children’s activities including a Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County craft table, Lowe’s kids clinic, face painter and balloon artist; auto display by Treasure Coast Vintage Car Club; food courtesy of St. Andrews Lutheran Church, and much more.

Join Habitat volunteers, homeowners, students, civic groups and local congregations at this fun-filled event to support the Habitat mission. Funds raised will help build homes for deserving families throughout Martin County.
