If you’re looking for a way to have free, Earth-friendly family fun this weekend, here's your chance. Make your way downtown to Sawyer Point along the riverfront Saturday from noon-5:30 p.m. for the 41st annual Earth Day celebration. This year’s theme is in honor of the nation’s first coast-to-coast roadside litter clean-up, Pick Up America, a local, regional and nationwide initiative committed to reducing plastic waste in our communities and waterways.
The day will be packed with plenty of planet-pleasing activities, like a children’s fashion show with creations made from recycled materials, an environmental puppet performance and a Planet Protector Parade. And you won’t want to miss Mother Earth storytelling or the baby animal exhibit from Farmer Frank’s Sunrock Farms. To commemorate the day’s events, an “Art For the Sky” photograph will be taken at 3 p.m. There will even be free, on-site recycling for those of you looking for a way to safely dispose of your old batteries, cellphones or other digital devices, but get there early as this is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
