Earth Day Festival means big fun

“Make your mother proud” is the theme of this year’s Earth Day Festival, and the festival will give you all kinds of opportunities to put a smile on Mother Earth’s face.

The Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Saturday at Centennial Park.

There will be a scavenger hunt, with a green twist, and there will be multiple opportunities to recycle goods ranging from bikes and bike helmets to new or gently worn shoes.

There will be plenty of music and craft activities for kids, and all sorts of chances to learn about being green. There will be sessions on running vehicles off the sun and water, several programs on electric cars, points for composting, as well as information on hiking and wildlife.

Eating locally and seasonally will be a key part of the festival, with information on everything from wild edibles to preserving food.

Speaking of eating, there will be lots of good food, from vegetarian choices to kettle corn to pizza.

This is just a sampling of what will be going on. Visit to learn more. Hope I see you there!
