Earth Day Festival set for April 21.

Sure, April 22 is the "official" date that Earth Day is celebrated around the globe. But here in Milton we will host the third annual Earth Day Festival Saturday, April 21.

Once again, the celebration will be held at pristine Birmingham Park, located at 750 Hickory Flat Road behind Fire Station No. 43.

"This will be an opportunity for the community to come together and enjoy this beautiful 200 acre park and to check out the latest ideas for environmental sustainability," said Jack Lindon, co-chairman of Milton Grows Green (MGG), the city's environmental citizens committee.

Last year the event boasted an animal show, Easter egg hunt, entertainment, kids activity area, vendors showcasing environmental products and services, a horse drawn carriage ride and free food samples.

"Our plan is to enhance the vendor area of the event, with the objective of bringing Milton residents the latest information on making their homes and businesses more environmentally sustainable," said Jon McPhail, co chair of MGG.

There are many ways to be involved in this annual event which last year drew 500 visitors: businesses may sign up for sponsorship and advertising benefits beginning at $250; companies with an environmental product or service to offer may obtain booth space; restaurants can showcase their favorite food samples; and groups can volunteer to help in many aspects, including planning, which begins immediately.

The city has lost it's mind after all, posting that particular picture to promote ED.
