You are warmly welcome to join Main Street Delaware in celebrating Earth Day on Friday, April 7 from 6 to 9 PM in downtown Delaware during the first road closure event of the year.

Earth Day is an annual event typically celebrated in April to raise awareness about environmental issues and encourage people around the world to take action to protect the planet. It was first observed in 1970 and has since grown into a global movement that involves over 1 billion people in 192 countries.

On Earth Day, people participate in a wide range of activities such as planting trees, cleaning up litter, attending environmental rallies, and learning about sustainability and climate change. The event serves as a reminder that we all have a responsibility to care for the Earth and to take action to preserve it for future generations.

To show your support for the environment, wear green and receive a free giveaway.

The event features a live turtle encounter, as well as community partner booths highlighting environmental awareness and sustainability with opportunities to win prizes. You can also participate in the Steps to Sustainability Activity by picking up a card from the Preservation Parks table, matching each step with downtown businesses, and returning the card for a chance to win prizes such as an Ohio Native Tree, Rain Collection Barrel, or Go Green Monopoly.

To get to the event, you can also take advantage of the First Friday Shuttle provided by Delaware County Transit. The shuttle departs every 15 minutes from the County Lot and drops off passengers near Barley Hopsters on William Street.

Sheetz, Performance Delaware, and Preservation Parks are supporters for this event.
