Are you environmentally-aware? Do you recycle, carpool, use a clothes line, grow your own garden and shop locally? If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, you’ll want to attend BART Blue Sky Festival. It takes place the day before Earth Day, on Thursday, April 21, 2011 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco and it is FREE.
Get great environmental information and giveaways from dozens of eco-exhibitors, healthy and organic food samples and listen to live music by the Venusians!
Get a BART Blue Sky Passport at the festival, fill it with stamps from six festival exhibitors and redeem it for a free $6 BART ticket. The first 5,000 people who turn in a completed passport will get a free $6 BART ticket right at the festival!
All stamped passports will be entered in a drawing to win one of two Giant Expressway 2 folding bikes. Official rules available at the festival. Folding bikes are allowed on all trains – BART bike rules.
