We’re excited to be a media sponsor at this year’s Austin Earth Day Festival! We hope to see all of you at this free, family friendly event on Saturday, Apr. 18 at Mueller Browning Hangar from noon – 6 p.m. Let’s connect with the Austin community and celebrate planet Earth with lots of hands-on demos, music, food trucks, info sessions on topics such as composting, rain gardens, tiny houses and more. And of course, this event has plenty of activities for the youngest attendees. The Kid’s Zone will include crafts and fun for all ages with magic, balloon sculptures, a Box City construction zone, petting zoo, kid’s parade and more!
