St. Louis Earth Day celebrated its 27th year Sunday afternoon at Forest Park.  The festival featured all sorts of opportunities for those looking to help keep the planet clean and sustainable.

There were booths broken down into neighborhoods such as food, education, arts and crafts along with home remodeling.

Last year – with less than stellar weather – the festival drew more than 50,000 people.  It was expected even more would show up this year.

“I can tell when this started back 27 years ago I heard stories of small community groups (gathering),” Traci Lichtenberg said. “Now we have this huge population really enjoying the day and the message.  We’re learning about new groups all the time that have new ways to incorporate sustainability in their lives.”

The St. Louis Earth Day festival also featured activities such as rock climbing, yoga and live performances from several local bands.
