Monday is the official "Earth Day,"  but it will be celebrated Saturday so everyone can enjoy the festivities.

 

Jackie Wilson with the Environmental Center says the event kicks off at 10:30 a.m. with the very popular "Procession of the Species."

 

"People are gathering on Louisiana Ave. near Troy Field and getting ready for the annual Procession of the Species Earth Day Parade. It's where we celebrate our connection to the natural world and we have lots of people dressed up as their favorite animals, plants, all sorts of great things. So it will be a really great parade."

 

Wilson says after the parade down Bond - Minnesota and Wall Streets; the fair with vendors, music and food will be on Kansas Avenue.
