We rode our bikes to Liberty State Park’s Earth Day event even though it might rain. (It did.)
We saw the festival from pretty far away because there were five GIANT bounce houses in a row, plus a kite exhibit.
Unfortunately it started to rain pretty hard immediately after we locked our bikes up, so we didn’t get a chance to bounce before heading under the main tent.
At last year’s event, we signed up for Andersen windows, so it’s safe to say I was a little nervous walking through this year. Instead, the find of the year was the water-testing kit from Suez water. Got Lead? We’ll let you know.
The rain let up enough for us to get outside, so we stood in line for the free plants (we chose chives – they were out of basil), got a snack, saw a dinosaur (who, Lucas says, was not a real dinosaur but a man in a costume), watched the jugglers, and settled in front of the stage.
We wrapped up the day with face painting, water collection (that’s what Lucas is doing with that orange cap – I guess some of the rainwater collection discussion over at the Suez Water table sunk in), danced with the Rosario Star & the Disney princesses and characters, and stayed until the very end rocking out with Mike and the Rock Ness Monsters (of Preschool of Rock.)
A great day was had by all. If you haven’t seen Preschool of Rock, here’s a tiny taste of how the day ended. Look for their name as the weather gets warmer – they’re everywhere in the summertime.
