Fun in the sun by the Charles

It seemed like the sun had gotten the memo about Earth Fest this Saturday.  After a whole week of awful, cold and bleak weather, the sun was out and shining like it had never been away! It was a perfect way to spend the day by the Charles all in honour of the Earth.
I hope you had the opportunity to get out and about, even if you didn't make it to the Hatchshell. In case you didn't here are a few highlights:
Little 'eco-tips' could be found at regular intervals with tib bits of information concerning different aspects of the environment.

Along with the food for thought, there was food for the body as well...Look at these buns! From Whole Foods bakery, they were pilled high and ready for snacking.

The Whole Foods tent is always a highlight, they have stations with different recipes out for sampling, this was their black bean and corn salad. They were also offering some delicious goat cheese and mushroom quesadilla and white or red bean toasts. 

The Whole Foods tent also features cooking demos throughout the day. These are always entertaining and best of all, they give out samples to the delicious foods they make...yummm

Of course a real highlight is the day long concert at the HatchShell. Luckily, when my mother and I went the grounds were just begining to fill, so we got to stroll around amidst the booths and get a great view of the main stage.
This festival is always a highlight in Boston, right on the cusp of spring turning to summer, it is a great way to re-connect with the environment and get savvy on all the latest eco trends!
Until 2012!
