reCOLORcycle promoThe City of Lewisville is inviting everyone to share their creativity and reCOLORcycle at ColorPalooza: A Celebration of Spring, Saturday, April 6, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., in and around Wayne Ferguson Plaza in Old Town Lewisville.

ReCOLORcycle is taking that bland 55-gallon recycle bin you see around your neighborhood and turning it into art. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s creative.

The City of Lewisville will provide complimentary bins, but all expenses related to decoration are the responsibility of the designer. Decorated recycle bins must be family friendly and free of profanity and political or religious affiliation. The City of Lewisville reserves the right to remove or not display any submitted art.

Clean recycle bins can be picked up at the Lewisville Visitor Information Center, 247 W. Main Street, Monday, Feb. 18-Wednesday, Feb. 20, 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Thursday, Feb. 21-Tuesday, March 19, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Take the bins home and decorate them as you see fit. The more creative and colorful the better.

Decorated recycle bins must be returned no later than Wednesday, March 20 to be displayed at ColorPalooza. Bins may be returned during regular business hours Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The Visitor Information Center will be open extended hours March 18-20, 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. for returns.

To participate, please go to the reCOLORcycle page on LewisvilleColorPalooza.com and fill out the interest form.

Admission to ColorPalooza will be free, although some activities will carry a nominal charge. This festival features a wide variety of exhibits and interactive events with a “spring feel” for the whole family. Visitors will get to show off their artistic abilities, watch skilled artists create one-of-a-kind artwork, marvel at and create colorful sidewalk chalk art, and learn how to better care for the Earth and make their homes more environmentally friendly. There also will be emphasis on interactive events for children, including inflatable play structures and creative arts and crafts stations.
