Alameda Earth Day Festival

When: Sat., April 20, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2013

For your fill of Earth Day festivities, head over to Alameda's Washington Park (740 Central Ave.) to partake in a day-long celebration of our lovely little planet. Kids can play games or visit exhibits to learn about building a healthier planet, produce vendors will peddle their farm-fresh wares, and everyone can participate in a variety of Scout-led sustainability projects. Make sure to bring the kids from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the Fourth-Annual Upcycling Team Sculpting Contest, using creativity and probably a fair amount of duct tape to turn trash into treasures. The volunteer-minded can also head over to the Crab Cove Visitor Center a couple hours early to pitch in on a pond- and beach-cleanup. 10 a.m.-3 p.m., free. 510-747-7529 or CityofAlamedaCA.gov
