Last year Tony and I celebrated our first anniversary (Earth Day, April 22) by attending the Green Festival in Chicago. I would highly recommend this event, by the way. It doesn’t always occur in Chicago, in fact this is a relatively new event, I think. Who knows when it will be back here and you could attend, if you live near Chicago. Anyway, we had a really good time, learned a lot, and even picked up quite a few CFL light bulbs, courtesy of Mayor Daley.
Guess what, I was wrong! I just checked, and Chicago is hosting a Green Festival again this year! You can attend this great event on May 16 and 17. I am so excited! Tony, if you are reading this, please mark your calendar now. 🙂 The even will be held this year at Navy Pier, which is good, because it will be a bit more accessible than where it was next year.
If you check out the Green Festivals website, you’ll find videos and photos from past events. Take a look if you would like to see what it is all about. Last year, what *we* were all about were the organic peanut butter sandwiches. I don’t know who made the peanut butter, because they were actually at the booth of a green magazine of some sort. But as far as I remember, that is what we ate for lunch! 🙂
So, I’m totally looking forward to going back this year!
