GreenFest Philly: Who doesn't love a block party?
September 9th sounds like a good day for a green street festival, doesn't it?
The masterminds behind GreenFest Philly think so. What debuted last year as the one-block South Street Green Festival is now a four-block extravaganza with music, speeches, art, clowns, a fashion show and a green wedding -- for starters! The festival will feature an emphasis on ecologically conscious building design, and there's already an impressive line-up of activities just for the young'ns. Since last year's smaller-scale event drew 6,000 people, it's a safe bet that GreenFest Philly will be huge.
You can get involved by volunteering or, if you're the professional type, offering your presentation services. If you're the poetic type, you can submit your eco-verses to the poetry contest. Looking to get hitched? You and your honey could be chosen for the festival's free green wedding! You've got a couple days left to submit your application.
