Vernon Earthfest 10

This past Sunday we celebrated Earth Day here at Mountain Creek with Vernon Earthfest 10.  Despite some early morning rains after a little convincing Mother Nature came around.  The rains stopped just in time for the event start as over 3,000 environmentally conscious individuals and families came out to enjoy the day. 

It was a sight to see as the South lodge was converted for the day into a fabulous mix of carnival, science fair, petting zoo and concert.  On the Main Floor over 70 vendors set up shop promoting and selling their environmentally friendly wares.  In the basement and the tents out back almost every manner of beast and creepy crawly were brought in for the guests to interact with, from wolves and turtles to bats and alligators.  Yes, I said Alligators!  Upstairs there was live music, a native american drumming circle and for the truly brave...we even had Karaoke.

Earthfest is an annual highlight for us and we wanted to thank everyone who came out and made this 10th anniversary such a tremendous success. 

As a community of outdoor enthusiasts we all need to do our part to protect our environment and its natural resources. For more information on what you can do to help protect the environment every day visit: The Official Earth Day Website
