A Green Apple A Day Keeps Global Warming At Bay
The Green Apple Festival is happening across America and is a chance for people to think about what the earth means to them.
NowPublic will be covering Earth Day with articles focused on the different continents that make up our planet.
It's all part of the Green Apple Festival, happening nationwide on Sunday at locations in Chicago, Washington D.C., New York City, Denver, Miami, Dallas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The Chicago event will take place at Lincoln Park Zoo and is hosted by Bears neck-beard sportin' backup QB Kyle Orton (what, Ronny Cedeno wasn't available?) and Jodi Murphy from Discovery Channel's Wrecklamation: Planet Green.
There will be plenty of pro-Earth activities, including a United Airlines-sponsored raffle of a continental round-trip ticket for those who bring old cellphones for recycling. There's also a pretty excellent family friendly music line-up (full schedule after the jump), including the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, one of our favorite New Orleans groups. We admit, though, we're a little disappointed we missed out on The Roots feat. Doug E. Fresh (performing in DC). In addition to the Sunday bill, there will be several shows around town this weekend under the Green Apple Fest umbrella. And the cherry on top? Sunday's event is abso-freaking-lutely FREE! The forecast for Sunday is sunny with temps in the 60's, so it'll be a beautiful day to break out the blankets and enjoy the festivities.
