Food Vendors, Bands And Little Rock Mayor Join In Celebrating The Earth Day
The Arkansas Earth Day Foundation, is inviting the public to its an annual festival.
“The whole point of the Earth Day Festival is to help teach the community about living a greener, more sustainable life,” said Christy Askea, the foundation’s president.
The festival is free and is being held on the grounds of Heifer International in Little Rock on Friday at 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Little Rock has actually moved on to do some better thing towards recycling. They’ve put out the green and yellow recycling bins that they picked up every two weeks. I know Mayor Stodola is doing a project on Main Street which is going to reduce urban runoff,” Askea said.
The event will feature food vendors, live music, a jump zone for kids, a rock climbing arena and tie dye booth.
The official Earth Day for 2013 is on April 22.
