Every year Earth Day falls on April 22nd. Since that is a Sunday, most areas will celebrate the event over the whole weekend. If you’re in town enjoying one of our fabulous Myrtle Beach vacation rentals you should know you’re welcome to join in any Earth Day festivities going on in the area.
The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. The event made a lasting impression of the importance of environmental issues as a community concern and an international political priority. For many participants, Earth Day marked a turning point in their lives, when blind consumption and unfettered industrial waste abruptly came under harsh scrutiny.
Earth Day has resonated, on a personal and political level, for over 40 years. In months following that first grassroots event, the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act and dozens of other pieces of legislation were passed. To a remarkable degree, Earth Day institutionalized protection for the land, air and water. And when, in 1990, Earth Day went global as an international event, the world embraced it with the same enthusiasm as Americans did in 1970.
On April 21, 2012, step out of your Myrtle Beach vacation rentals and bring your family to the Earth Day Music Fest at Grand Park in The Market Common. The outdoor festival will offer live music from Bullfrog, Soulful-i, Treehouse, Finnegan Bell and Sideways Derby. Grab a brew at the Gordon Biersch Beer Garden. There will also be a Kid Zone, Health and Wellness Expo and Art Show. The Earth Day Music Fest will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 21 at Grand Park in The Market Common.
