EcoFest 2016 is just around the corner! This year's extravaganza will take place on Sunday, October 23 from 1-6 pm at the Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine, KS. This is the event which began in 2014 as my school project and has since become an annual celebration of all things eco.
MakeICT is leading the work on two updated bicycle generators: from fine-tuning the tandem bicycles to creating a giant meter to show the amount of power being generated. We have increased the number of vendors and informational booths and have invited some new presenters. We are also excited to have a tiny house on display again this year. This tiny house in being built near Yoder, KS. The usual kinetic art display will be updated and the volunteers working on the kids' activities have been hard at work preparing some new crafts.
EcoFest will offer a variety of types of live music ranging from Irish to Big Band - including SoCe's very own folk band Brutal Bear!
So, pack a picnic and bring your family to EcoFest on Sunday October 23!
