In celebration of WORLD WATER DAY (held March 22 of each year), the annual event, presented by Cirque du Soleil in partnership with the Springs Preserve and ONE DROP, was a means of drawing attention to the importance of freshwater and the sustainable management of freshwater resources. All proceeds raised from the event will go to support the educational and environmental-sustainability programs at the Springs Preserve.
