We’re going to head over to the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on Santa Monica’s 3rd Street Promenade today and check out the Eco-Fest with over 60 fascinating eco-exhibits, food, music, and fun.
Some of the activities will be:
Interactive kid-friendly exhibits to include Stuart Wilde’s live llamas, Star Eco-Station’s and Children’s Nature Institute’s wild animals; Heal the Bay, Surfrider, and California Science Center’s nature exhibits. Kids will have a chance to adopt a shark, pet a llama, or sit in the driver’s seat of a Big Blue Bus powered by natural gas.
A “Sustainable Transport Village” will include displays of alternative fuel vehicles including Toyota 3rd Generation Prius, Honda hybrid(s), electric bikes and scooters.
The best part (the heart) of the festival, live music will be presented by Mamapalooza!; Women-empowered, Mom-branded Entertainment & Activism for a greener planet, featuring among others Stacy Robin and the Mama Earth Band, Sabina with Free To Be Me Drum Circle and other award-winning singers & songwriters!
We will be capturing moments and performances to share with you later this weekend.
