Area residents are invited to gather at Core Creek Park in Middletown Township for the annual Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 27.

The event promises a day filled with fun, education, and enjoyment of the outdoors from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Organized by a collaboration of local governments including Falls Township, Hulmeville Borough, Middletown Township, Newtown Township, Northampton Township, and the Bucks County, the celebration aims to promote environmental awareness and sustainable practices, organizers said.

Attendees can look forward to a variety of activities and booths hosted by local vendors and organizations.

The event is family-friendly, with activities designed to engage attendees of all ages in environmental stewardship.

The Earth Day celebration not only provides a platform for community engagement but also continues a long-standing tradition of advocating for the planet. The first Earth Day, held in 1970 and started by a U.S. senator and marked the start of a global movement. It led to significant environmental actions, including the establishment of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the celebration of Earth Day by over 140 countries worldwide.

One of the largest Earth Day rallies in 1970 happened in Philadelphia and featured speakers, artists, and live music.
