Today has been designated World Water Day. The essential message is that we should use our often limited water resources carefully and engage in water conservation.

I read that a World Water Day Celebration was to be held in Balboa Park at the WorldBeat Center, so I headed from downtown up Park Boulevard to see what was going on.

What I discovered was a lot of interesting knowledge and very cool fun!

World Water Day in Balboa Park included a kids poster contest, painting, music, dance, a water blessing, and a global meditation.

Downtown San Diego has been my home for many years. My online activities reflect my love for writing, blogging, walking and photography.

One thought on “Art, stories, dance at World Water Day Celebration.”

  1. I did a meditation last night, created by Children of the Sun, with people joining in at 8 pm their time all over the world. We had to just, off a list, one body of water, and one industrial polluting corporation, to focus our love and light upon. I chose the Mississippi river and Koch industries 🙂
