Earth Day and Easter celebrated


The Trash Bag Monster was walking around Riverwalk Park covered in what looked like thousands of bags that he had got from underneath his sink.

In addition to the several booths that were lined up Riverwalk Park, there were a couple groups of kids from the Chelan Middle School that had brought posters and props and had their own presentation about Earth Day. The one pictured above explained how hard it is to go completely green when you take everything into account. They also had a computer available for you to take a quiz to see how many planets it would take for you to live your current lifestyle. It would take both girls over 3 planets to accommodate their lifestyle.

Ally Williams, Ruby Wier and Teegen Silva (not in order) hold up their frame equipped with salmon costumes. Their presentation talked about how climate change has an effect on wildlife, including salmon.

Patrons of the Fair could head just a block away to the Garage-O-Rama at the Coldwell Banker parking lot, where there were several booths set up with lots of goodies.

Jim McElvaney explains his “Jims boost yourself elixir”.

Musician Lance Tigner came on stage at 10 a.m. and played a collection of classic and modern rock on his acoustic guitar. It was a great way to start the Fair as the soothing sounds of Jack Johnson filled the air.

There were three Tesla’s on display at the fair plus a Nissan Leaf and an electric mower.

Chelan Fire & Rescue held a Safety Fair on Saturday, April 15 at their station in Chelan where they answered questions about safety, took pictures with kids, gave a tour around the building, and provided a free barbecue that consisted of burgers, hot dogs, chips and Gatorade or water.

One of the booths that stood out among the rest at the Earth Day Fair on Saturday, April 15, was held by Chelan native Molly Starcher. The booth offered colorful samples of the hand-spun yarn and projects Starcher provides.

Chelan High School Sophmores, (left to right) Magnolia, Kiki, Cailee, and Anahi, boldly displayed their take on recycling. They’re intent, according to the recycle fashionistas, was to bring awareness to how many frequently tossed away items can be repurposed in a fun, productive way.

Ian and Natalie Blevins, of Orondo, had their place among the many other booths presented at the 28th Annual Earth Day Fair at Riverwalk Park on Saturday afternoon. The Blevins’ educational student booth was placed with the intentions of bringing an awareness to the effects that single use plastics can have on the environment.
