Happy Earth Day everyone!
All across the media, at schools, workplaces, and on the Google homepage our society is recognizing Earth Day. We are lucky to live in a place that places such great emphasis on sustainability, innovation, and recognizing our environmental impact.
For what takes place on Earth Day beyond the shared images of planet earth, healing hands, and woodland critters (which are very cute) visit www.earthday.org According to their site, “More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.”
More Celebrations to Come
Less than 2 months until we can celebrate the Earth in a uniquely Fremont fashion! The Solstice Festival and Fremont Fair will take place on June 20-22 and you don’t want to miss a minute of it!
New this year will be the Solstice Concert Series and the parade moves to a new time. Keep an eye out for Fremont Universe’s coverage of the event and our Festive Fremonster Guide with tips for local Fremonsters and friends during the festivities.

Earth Day is this Friday, April 22nd. A celebration intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the natural environment, there will be plenty of events going on around the world as well as right here in Seattle.
One of the events is happening right around the corner in Gas Works Park. The Sierra Club, CoolMom, Earth Ministry, Washington Environmental Council and Climate Solutions are hosting a free community Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 23rd between 11am and 3pm there.
The event will celebrate Washington’s anticipated transition from coal-power while highlighting the need to support the E.P.A. in its efforts to protect people across America from the dangerous pollution associated with coal burning and to make sure we do not export coal to other countries where no E.P.A. exists.
The event will feature bands, food, speakers and a make-your-own-kite activity. For more information on the event and Coal-Free Washington, visit their site or check out the event’s Facebook page.
