POINT PLEASANT — The Point Pleasant Borough Environmental Commission hosted the 18th annual Earth Day Celebration at Riverfront Park on Saturday, April 22.
Forty-six vendors, businesses and organizations come out on the beautiful day to celebrate the planet. The event featured bands and a soloist, rides, a petting zoo, educational displays and green products, as well as a few food vendors and food trucks. Red House Guitar Studio had an acoustic soloist along with two full bands playing on the Ocean County Stage throughout the four-hour event.
“It is important to talk to the people in the community about the need to act as a good steward of the natural resources that are entrusted to us,” said Dennis Blazak, chair of the borough Environmental Commission of Point Pleasant.
The theme of this year’s Earth Day was “Wild Point Pleasant,” putting emphasis on the wildlife of the town and its natural areas.
“We are a fully built out town on the banks of two different rivers. We have the canal, and we do have some open space, but not a lot, and you really want to care about the stuff you do have,” Mr. Blazak said.
