Oak Parkers will get their choice of culinary delights via four wheels at the village's fifth annual Earth Fest celebration.
The festival, held at the LEED Gold-certified Public Works Center on Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature food truck vendors "to serve up tasty snacks" right outside the venue, according to a news release from the village.
The festival will spotlight efforts to "go green" this year at neighborhood block parties. Residents also will have access to dozens of vendors in addition to composting and gardening consultations, outdoor kids' activities, energy-efficiency tutorials, car-sharing information, tips on eco-friendly landscaping and bicycle registration with Oak Park police.
Recycle Alley, a popular feature at last year's festival, will return, giving residents the chance to bring in items such as glasses, hearing aids, prescription drugs, CFL light bulbs, cellphones, rechargeable batteries and wine corks, which aren't included in the blue bin program.
