Whirled Peace Event

On Saturday, September 21, the Kennesaw Art & Culture Commission will be displaying Pinwheels for Peace at Swift-Cantrell Park in Kennesaw. This “whirled peace” event is an opportunity for students, families, church members and business owners to take part in a colorful display of community unity on the International Day of Peace.

Drop off pinwheels the week of Sunday, Sept. 17 at the Ben Robertson Community Center [2753 Watts Drive, Kennesaw] or from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Swift-Cantrell Park on Saturday, Sept. 21. Any pinwheels that remain after 6:00 p.m. on that day will be recycled.

It takes just a few supplies and a few minutes to make a pinwheel. A template can be found here and step-by-step instructions can be followed in this video.
