Earth Fest at The Sacramento Zoo
Today was a great day to be at The Sacramento Zoo. It was sunny and beautiful and there were animals and smiling painted faces everywhere you looked.
There were many booths set up around the zoo in honor of Earth Fest. Among them were the Sacramento Public Library, Sierra Club, Department of Conservation, The Lavender Farm, and many more along with crafts, a rummage sale, live music, and face painting.
The Sacramento Press tent was set up close to the zoo entrance. Most people were instantly attracted to our spinning, clicking prize wheel and headed over to our booth to see what was to be won: stickers, postcards, and best of all, reusable grocery bags.
By two o’clock every single reusable grocery bag had disappeared. It was a great sight to walk around the zoo and see people loaded down with reusable bags, reusable bottles, recycling pamphlets, used library books, and adorned with glittering faces and ‘Share’ and ‘Tell’ Sacpress.com stickers.
