Mohr Power Solar sponsors earth-friendly fun
It IS easy being green, at least at the 2008 L.A. County Fair. The Fair’s “green” exhibit features the best in “edu-tainment” with a conscience – more than 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-earth activities, attractions, exhibits and vendors presenting dozens of unique “green” products such as bamboo clothing, soy candles, all-natural baby items, antioxidant drinks, recycled jewelry, solar fans, environmental purifiers, eco-friendly termite control, solar lights and more.
As part of the Going Green exhibition, the Gas Company will provide Fairguests with free Energy-Efficiency Starter Kits with low-flow showerhead and faucet aerators for the home. Each kit is valued at $14.
Scattered throughout Going Green are several large habitats containing living rainforest animals, including a Sloth Hide-a-Way, Parrot Garden, Python Palapa – home to a 200-pound python – and a Gecko Grotto.
Fairguests will visit a ranger station and meet real firemen, foresters, and rangers and explore nature-themed exhibits about native plants and animals, fire prevention, recycling, water conservation, forestry, trees, recreation opportunities and alternative energy. Don’t forget to take home a real tree sapling to do your part in Caring for the Land.
The all new Green Stage, presented by Jeffrey Scott Fine Magnetics, has an eco-friendly theme. You can Go Green with Paul Cash, an environmental magician who uses humor and illusions to teach people of all ages to reduce, reuse and recycle. Also gracing the Green Stage, the amazing Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats thrill Fair audiences with their unbelievable martial arts and feats of balance.
The L.A. County Fair is Sept. 5 – 28, closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Live thoroughbred racing is Sept. 5 – 22, closed Tuesdays. For more information, visit the Web site at www.lacountyfair.com.
