Earth Day Arrives as Car Free Day Tomorrow
There were a lot of earthy things to do this weekend, but the true Earth Day is tomorrow. And after that, Earth Day-like events continue through May 10th with one of the best Earth Day festivals around -- WorldFest in Encino.
Tomorrow and as previously mentioned, Wilshire Blvd. is being closed down between Western and Harvard. Since it's also Car Free Day, the event abut the Metro Wilshire/Western station encourages subway use, but for those on a bus, effected routes will go down 8th Street. At the event, there will be music (yay for the Monkey Chant!), discussions and plenty of eco-friendly vendors. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Over at Santa Monica College is the lunchtime scheduled EcoFabulous II Celebration and in Pasadena, the Armory Center for the Arts holds it's Tuesday night event -- Into Action: Greening the Earth Film & Discussion Series (pdf). Also in the evening is the second EcoTuesdays social gathering at Social Hollywood with a speaker included (this month is Melanie St. James of Empowerment Works).
