Milton Grows Green (MGG) and City of Milton are proud to announce the 3rd Annual Earth Day Festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in rustic Birmingham Park.
This fun, free family event is part of Milton's efforts to increase environmental awareness in the community and will include entertainment, horse-drawn carriage and pony rides, inflatable hamster balls, a rock wall, one-of-a-kind crafts and unique environmental games. There will also be free food from local eateries, vendors displaying "green" products and services, and much, much more.
"We are excited to be able to provide a great event for the community," said Kathy Johnson, Earth Day Festival chairwoman. "We hope residents learn about new, environmentally friendly products and services while having a great time outdoors with family and neighbors."
Cindy Eade, Milton's environmental sustainability coordinator, said a number of local volunteer groups will be involved to ensure a good time, including the Milton Garden Club, Boy and Girl scout troops, the Hopewell Middle School Junior Beta Club, the Young Men's Service League of Milton High School, the Northwestern Middle School Environmental Club and Verizon Green Team.
"We sincerely appreciate everyone involved in making this year's event happen, from the volunteers, to the sponsors, to the vendors," said Eade. "Without their support, we would not be able to offer such a first class event free to the community."
