Community attends St. Clair County Earth Fair

The St. Clair County Earth Fair arrived at Goodells County Park on Friday, April 25 and departed Saturday evening on the 26.
The Earth Fair was very kid friendly. It had hands on activities to teach them how important it is to keep our earth green. The kids were able to make bird houses and feeders. The kids even got to make their own paper with glitter or seeds inside of it.
The biggest hit was the animals. The fair had animals as small as a baby chick up to two large Alpacas. They had bunnies as soft as could be and a snake with freshly new skin.
Riley Hatcher said his favorite thing about the fair was “being able to touch the lizard and the snake.”
“The snake felt so smooth.” he said.
Chris’s Bunnies from Fort Gratiot was there. “I sold about 90 bunnies for Easter and I will probably get 20 of them back.” Chris not only has bunnies for sale but she also takes in bunnies that people no longer want” she stated. “Never release a pet bunny into the wild, they will not survive. Bring them to me,” she said.
On Friday, bus after bus unloaded students ready to learn and see what the Earth Fair had to offer. Saturday was more laid back with families enjoying family time and togetherness while learning how to help save our environment.
Saturday the girls from Paul Mitchell hair school were there to donate their time to do free face painting.
The Earth Fair had many different stations hosted by companies sharing their eco-friendly advances and products. Tupperware showing the latest storage sets, DTE showing what light bulbs save you money and are safer, and the Blue Water Transit and how riding it saves our environment and helps keep our breathing air cleaner.
