CTbites Team

Celebrate Earth Day in Woodbury, CT on Saturday, April 27 at Hollow Park from 11 am to 4 pm. This 19th annual event, sponsored by the Woodbury Business and Economic Development Committee, as well as New Morning Market will feature local, natural and organic vendors and exhibitors. Food vendors this year will include the Caseus Cheese Truck, GZen's G Monkey truck, El Camion, Chet’s Italian Ice, Le Petite France’s fresh crepes cart, Dottie’s Donuts and Annie Bananie ice cream

“2012 was the first year that the event was held at Hollow Park instead of New Morning’s parking lot area” says Joe Donato, chairman of the Woodbury Business and Economic Development Committee.  “It was incredibly well attended, with more than 120 vendors and exhibitors, and over 5,000 guests. We could not be happier.”

Activities planned include children’s arts and crafts, a petting zoo and a hula hoop demonstration. There will be musicians taking the stage throughout the day, including Doug Mahard, Krizta Moon, Sweetheart Mountain and Emily Colt.  In addition, guests can enjoy a River Walk, a Weed Walk and Kayak Demo on Hollow Pond.   “This is a great way for families and friends to work together in support of a community event that could not run smoothly without their help,” says Carol Haskins, volunteer committee member in charge of coordinating volunteers.
