Party for the Planet at the Zoo

When: Sun., April 17 2011

Charge up the Prius or pump up the bike tires and head out today for the 22nd annual EarthFest at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Sponsored by the Earth Day Coalition, the all-day celebration is the longest-running annual Earth Day festival in the nation and Ohio's largest environmental education event. This year's edition features more than 175 green exhibits focused on eco-friendly home improvements, local and organic food, clean transportation, renewable energy, and more. You'll find main-stage bands, roving musicians, art displays, and fitness activities too. If you want to get the party started early — and snag free admission in the process — take part in the six-mile, 9 a.m. Walk for the Earth in the nearby Brookside Park Reservation; register at or by calling 216-281-6468. It all goes down from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 3900 Wildlife Way. Regular adult admission is $11, less for children and members.
