Organizers say it’s also an opportunity for people of all ages to have some fun.

“(We had an) excellent turnout considering we had two years off due to the pandemic. I thought it was going to be more of a rebuilding year, but we had a nice pleasant turnout,” Earth Day coordinator Susanna Reppert said.

More than two-dozen vendors participated in the celebration.
