The City of El Paso Environmental Services Department (ESD) invites everyone to celebrate Earth Day by attending ESD’s Earth Day Celebration from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, at the Municipal Service Center on 7968 San Paulo.
The free, annual fun-filled family event will include educational and recreational activities that promote environmentalism and community pride. The celebration includes numerous educational booths, music, crafts and food.
The event also includes pet adoptions from the Animal Services Shelter, ESD vehicle displays, food trucks and ESD’s own mascots, Captain Green and Super Spud the Shelter Dog.
New this year is the Live Art on a giant roll-off container, where guests can enjoy watching local artists create a gorgeous mandala right before their eyes. Children will be invited to help the artists create the stencils for the work of art.
Guests can also enjoy a Recycled Fashion Challenge, where two teams will have 30 minutes to build a beautiful outfit, made solely of recyclable materials, onto models from EB Productions.
