Your weekend: Earth Day. Washington Park.
I want to close up my Earth Week coverage with a shout-out about our annual Earth Day festivities over at Washington Park, which run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
We do love a good festival on this little Island, and this one will have all the requisites: food, games, music and fun for the little ones, plus all sorts of environmental information (that hopefully will be printed on recycled paper). Oh, and rec and park have summer program signups too.
Event organizers are also asking people to walk or bike, and will be providing free valet bicycle parking.
A Sustainable Living Symposium will run concurrent with the festival, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Park, which is at the corner of Eighth and Westline.
