The 2016 Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair will get underway Saturday, April 16.
Starting at 11 a.m. and running until 3 p.m. at Caldwell Park, the free fair will feature free food, more than 80 booths from local vendors, kids activities, and more. The fair highlights the “small steps you can take at home, work, school, and on the road to improve our local environment.” Also on the bill is a day of live music featuring returning favorites 4 AM Club and Dan & Heather, along with a new act for 2016, Psychedelic Bomb & the Lambimals.
“Mostly, the fair celebrates Pocatello and this valley we call home,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager for the City of Pocatello. “What I love most is the energy that the Pocatello community brings to the event, with dozens and dozens of community volunteers sharing ideas and expertise about ways we can all improve the air and water in Pocatello. There is so much to do and learn at the fair.”
A great aspect of the Environmental Fair is that everyone can contribute to it. Attendees can drop off unwanted prescription medications, eye glasses, cell phones, and batteries for recycling. Additionally, the fair is still seeking submissions for the recycled sculpture contest and the recycled fashion show. Details can be found at envirofair.org/contests.
Attendance at last year’s fair was estimated to be more than 5,000 people.
