How to Celebrate Earth Day, San Diego Style!

Hello San Diegans! Need plans for this upcoming weekend? Why not spend your Sunday afternoon with I Love A Clean San Diego at the 24th annual EarthFair! The fair will be located at the beautiful Balboa Park from 10am-5pm on Sunday April 21st. Admission is free! What better way to spend your weekend in America’s Finest City then by sauntering through Balboa Park learning the latest and greatest about going green?

Each year EarthFair brings around 70,000 visitors. Did you know EarthFair started with a local organization called San Diego Earthworks back in 1989? The organization held its first EarthFair a year later in 1990 with the organizational skills of only three people! The first event included 215 volunteers and 50,000 visitors! (How impressive is that?)  Every year after that people from all over come to join in on the celebration.

The day will be filled with various events ranging from a children’s parade, eARTh galleries, a plethora of environmental exhibitors, unique food vendors, and other sources of great entertainment. The fair is an awesome and fun way to understand more ways to get involved in order to make the environment a safe and better place!  Whether you are eager to learn or ready to get your hands dirty and volunteer, the EarthFair is prepared to provide you with all the information you need!
