Transcript Day Fest The earth stole the show at the 5th annual Earth Day Festival Eleanor Tinsley Park played hostess to the 5th annual KRBE/Enron Day Festival April 7 as Houstonians gathered to learn more about their environment through informative demonstrations and exhibits all while enjoying music from bands such as Collective Soul and Soul Decision. For the bargain price of only $20, Houstonians were given the chance to learn about the environment while having fun. In keeping with the theme of the environment, Metro offered free bus rides from the Enron Building to the festival site. It also made an additional stop at the corner of Polk and Louisiana. Dating back to 1996, the Earth Day Festival invites local environmental organizations to share their knowledge about what is being done and what can be done about Houstons environment. This year with no exception. More than 40 environmental groups such as Amnesty International Group 23, Friends of Herman Park and Houston Outdoor Nature Club set up booths to educate Houstonians about the environment. "I think the Festival is good way to raise awareness about pollution to a younger generation. People come to see the bands at the festival and at the same time are educated about keeping the earth clean!' senior photography major, Brian Viney said.

Photo by Brian Viney By: M ichel le Norton While learning about the earth, Houstonians also indulged in the fun activities, food and music the festival had to offer. The Extreme Zone featured adrenaline- pumping activities such as a rock wall, a high-speed flight simulator, a spinning orbi- tron and a bungee jumping. The Kids Area allowed kids to paint and sculpt, play on a moon walk, slide down a slide two stories high and meet and greet fun and zany clowns. Kids could also paint their faces and play carnival-like games to win fun and exciting prizes. In addition to learning about the environment, festival-goers could enjoy the music stylings of bands such as Vertical Horizon, Wyclef Jean and ATC. The music provided a festive atmosphere that Houstonians could enjoy as they sampled food and stopped at the different booths. As the two prominent supporters of the festival, 104 KRBE and Enron donated the proceeds to the Citizens' Environmental Coalition and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department. Other sponsors included Sun&Ski Sports, Bud Light and Kroger. The festival gave Houstonians valuable information about how they can change their habits to help their environment. It also gave them a chance to kick back and have some down-to-earth fun. Community Soul Decision gets the crowd moving with their own brand of pop music.
