Come and join Marietta’s Earth Day celebration

Marietta’s Earth Day Celebration is fast approaching. Please note the event will be in East Muskingum Park this year – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20.

Now is the time to consider entering the Sweetgum Ball Contest and the Trash-to-Art Contest.

Marietta streets provide an almost unlimited number of sweetgum balls – consider them as raw material for landscaping, “sculptures,” building materials, decorations – you are limited only by your imagination!

For the Trash-to-Art Contest, you will find your raw materials in the waste basket or recycling bin. Your product might be decorative, functional or artsy.

Prizes will be given in several age groups in each contest.

Bring entries for both contests to East Muskingum Park by 10 a.m. Saturday, April 20, then stay for the celebration which will provide fun and informational opportunities until 2 p.m. for people of all ages.

Hope to see you there!
