Earth Week begins in La Crosse

On Sunday, Earth Fair’s main festivities kicked off at Myrick Park. There was live music as well as live animals.

Festival goers could spin a wheel for a chance to win door prizes. The Grand Green Prize was also up for grabs. The winner receives free Organic Valley products for a year, a child bicycle from Bike’s Limited, and the chance to try out an advanced fuel vehicle for two weeks from Honda Motorworks.

Plenty of children were a part of Sunday’s festivities and one organizer explained the importance of this youth outreach.

“It’s important to get the younger generation moving and interacting with our earth and the environment,” said Earth Fair committee member Brandon Knudtson.

Earth Fair also hosted the first farmers market of the season.
