The Orlando Project launched in March 2017 in celebration of World Water Day in Orlando, Florida. Orlando classrooms painted and converted Coca-Cola Beverages Florida syrup barrels. From March 31-April 2, 40 rain barrels were painted at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival. Park guests were invited to ‘Brighten a Barrel’, and the barrels were then donated to the City of Orlando for installation throughout the community.
