The Hoffman Estates Park District will celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 7 from 10:00AM to 1:00PM at Vogelei Park (650 W. Higgins Road).

This FREE community event kicks off earth week encouraging sustainable healthy living. The community will come together to share and explore over 25 vendors exhibiting easy, new ways to be green and save green. There will be lots of earth friendly activities for children and all ages to enjoy.
