I plan on going to this event with my boys. Last year we had a really good time there, some of the products and demonstrations were pretty interesting. I cannot remember if there was a recycling group last year, but what a neat thing to offer to the residents of the area!

There was an activity that the kids were able to do that involved planting bean seeds in a cup for their own little plant and some other environmental/conservation stuff. It was alot of fun for the kids to see the animals too!

I suggest if any of you go, to go early as the pickings are slimmer the later you get there, due to the amount of people.
