5th Annual Shoreline SolarFest: July 19, 2008

Sustainability anyone?

This weekend the Shoreline Solar Project presents: Shoreline SolarFest

SolarFest seems to consist of two elements: a "kick off" event and a fair.

According to the Solar Project's website, the kick-off will be held this Friday, July 18th at 7pm at the Aurora Church of the Nazerene (175th & Meridian). There will be a fashion show by Haute Trash (described as a troupe of resourceful artists who produce runway fashion shows with hilariously trashy, incredibly flashy, amazingly creative costumes made of totally recycled trash). There will also be a silent auction with proceeds going to support SolarFest.

The fair is the following day: Saturday, July 19th from 10am - 8pm at Meridian Park School (also 175th & Meridian).

Guest speakers will address various sustainability issues including: green building, solar power, water harvesting, and more. There will also be dozens of exhibitors with ideas about and suggestions for living a more earth-friendly lifestyle.

The fair will also include a sale of used goods, electronics recycling (at a discount), solar cooking demonstrations, and a 'Kid Zone' where your kids can make a Solar Contraption(!) - they'll even be provided with a solar panel and a solar motor. Your kid could be a mad solar-scientist for a day!

There will even be a few bands playing music throughout the day. Get all the details by clicking on the link below.
