Food will be on hand from Silvio’s Organic Pizza, Pilar’s Catering and People’s Food Co-op. And if you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, you can bike all the way to the festival on the adjacent Border to Border Trail. It’s an afternoon with a wealth of fun and information for all. Free. 12-4pm. 4800 E. Huron River Dr.
