The City of Manhattan Beach, in conjunction with V.O.I.C.E (Volunteers and Organizations Improving the Community’s Environment), will host the day's events featuring a large assortment of fresh food and family fun; including music, games, eco-friendly products, and information on the City of Manhattan Beach’s efforts toward making our city a greater and greener place to live, play and work.
The first “official” Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970. People from around the nation got involved in efforts to help protect the environment. Since then, Earth Day has been celebrated in countries all over the world. The first Earth Day celebration in the City of Manhattan Beach was held in 1992 at Polliwog Park and has grown to include more than 7,000 participants annually.
This year will also feature a new Earth Day Exchange, where community members can donate clean, gently-used items and exchange them for "new" treasures. Find out details about this and more Earth Day events on the Going Green webpage.
