The Earth Day Fair and La Liga Ecológica
Puertorriqueña de Rincón are gone. But look at what it once was.
The happy "crew" of Liga, welcoming visitors at
the door with a smile.

||Since the first Rincon Earth Day in 1990, the Fair
has been a forum for education on environmental themes. The Liga Ecologica presents
displays and demonstrations on local issues as well as global environmental problems.
||Artisans display their local crafts and foods for the
public to enjoy at the Earth Day Fair, held on the weekend nearest April 20th each year,
at the Cancha Bajo Techo (the town coliseum) in downtown Rincon. The Municipio
de Rincon (city government) has supported the event since its inception.
||Bernardo demonstrates his human-powered piragua
(shaved ice with fruit flavors) machine at the Earth Day Fair.
||Many governmental and environmental organizations set
up booths at the Earth Day Fair, to distribute information, explain to people their work,
and get people involved (for example, signing petitions for environmental causes).
||Favorite attractions at the Earth Day Fair are the
plant sale, "Recycled Treasures" (flea market tables), art show, folk dancing,
and live music.
||The annual Earth Day Fair is a gathering place for
people who care about the environment to meet each other, share ideas, and have fun.
||The Children's Corner at the Earth Day Fair invites
children to make arts and crafts while learning about protecting our environment.
||The Liga Ecologica Puertorriquena de Rincon, Inc.,
was a volunteer, non-profit, environmental organization, and welcomed the support of all
those who want a safe, beautiful place to live for our children.
