STOCKTON — “Be a Breath of Fresh Air in Your Community” is the theme of this year’s annual Earth Day Festival on Sunday, April 18, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Victory Park, behind Haggin Museum in Stockton.

The focus of the day long festival is to educate you about taking care of our natural resources - the earth, air and water. Admission is free.

The festival will have dozens of informative, interactive booths, displays and exhibits, plus there will be plenty of great food and exotic crafts. Local area schools will be teaching you how to better take care of our earth with a variety of hands-on activities, and environmental organizations will educate you about the important issues that impact you and how you can make a difference. Community agencies will help you live a healthier, more positive life, and green businesses will assist you in making changes to your home and workplace. Over 100 vendors will border the oak trees and cross the grass field at Victory Park, making this Earth Day Festival the biggest ever. Close to 10,000 people attend this event annually.
A full schedule of entertainment starts at 11 a.m., featuring colorful ethnic dance groups and local area bands. Warm-up for the day though at 10 a.m. with Yoga on the park green. Join the hundreds of cyclists who will bike around the neighborhood as part of the Family Fun Bike Ride and Parade. Biking registration is at 10:30 a.m. Kids can strut as their favorite animal in the Endangered Species Parade that will circle the park. Or participate as a drummer in the Drum Circle that traditionally closes the Festival on a percussive high note at 4 p.m.  
Volunteers are still needed to assist before and on the day of the Festival so call (209) 946-2083 if you would like to be actively involved in San Joaquin County’s Earth Day activities.
