Earth Day has come and gone, this is what my daughter, Tara did. What did you do? It was on a Sunday and maybe you forgot or it was your day of rest.

Here's something that you can do this weekend to celebrate the Earth. It's the 29th annual Earth Fest happening this Sunday, April 29th at the SUNY Broome Student Center Gym brought to you by the Earth Day Southern Tier committee and Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition (BRSC).

The event will go from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and have more than 40 Earth-friendly vendors and exhibits from businesses in the Southern Tier. There wiill be things for the kids to do including crafts and activites from Roberson Museum and Science Center, animals from the Binghamton Zoo, clothing & book drive and more.

There is also a River Trails Bike Cruise that starts at the Earth Fest Main Entrance at 1 p.m. It's a easy pace, flat terrain 10 mile bike ride. Bring your own bike and helmet and non-club member are welcome too.

Earth Day Southern Tier is a local, all volunteer and not-for-profit group that believes in environmental conservation and wants to provide education, information and the chance to talk with people about environmental issues.
