Sustainable living highlighted at the annual Mercer Green Fest
The Mercer Green Fest, in its 14th year, has now become a family tradition. Come one and all to this annual FREE, fun, entertaining, and educational festival! Rain or shine, we are expecting over 100 vendors including sustainable businesses, farmers market, non-profit organizations, school and student projects, art, energy programs, and much more.
There will be lots to do and see. Electric cars are becoming so popular and the Green Fest will feature one of the largest displays on the east coast. Speak with an expert while checking out the different kinds of makes and models available. The Mercer Transportation Management Association (TMA) will be handing out copies of their new trail network plan just in time for your family to plan a spring bike ride.
Fun for the Kids…
