Arbor Day Celebration
The City of Ceres has been recognized for the past 17 years as a "Tree City USA". In order to maintain this distinction, the City of Ceres chooses a school to host our annual Arbor Day event. The children from the school participate in a poster contest celebrating the benefits of trees. The entire school is invited to the assembly with the Mayor acting as MC. Prizes are awarded, trees are planted and refreshments are provided.
This popular event is held in downtown Ceres during the first weekend in May. The faire features local vendors, arts and crafts booths, food booths, a car show, a parade, and entertainment for all ages. This event is sponsored by the Ceres Chamber of Commerce and the Ceres Lions Club.
National Night Out
This event is sponsored by the Ceres Department of Public Safety and various community organizations. The focus of this event is community crime prevention and friends and families are invited to join local law inforcement, local officials, and civic groups at Smyrna Park for this citywide "block party" held in August. National Night Out is designed to strengthen our neighborhood spirit and public safety-community partnerships.
This event provides children and their families with a safe and fun place to go on Halloween night. Festival goers of all ages can participate in free activities from 6:00-8:00pm at the Ceres Community Center. The activities include arts & crafts, costume contest, face painting, carnival games, harvest photos, a petting zoo and a haunted house.
