Green Cruise celebrates Earth in Downtown Ferndale
(Crystal A. Proxmire)
About 600 people came to Downtown Ferndale for the Annual Sierra Club Green Cruise. This event takes place the weekend before Dream Cruise each year, as an eco-friendly alternative.
The day begins with two bike rides, then moves to a Green Parade and a festival with a kids play and craft area, and a long stretch of booths known as Green Alley. Businesses provide samples of earth-friendly foods, while nonprofit groups educate passer-bys about their causes.
