Earth Day Celebration at Hugh MacRae Park

APRIL 21, 2006 -- The Lower Cape Fear is celebrating Earth Day 2006 at Hugh Macrae Park.

Wave Transit is urging Wilmington residents to take the bus to Hugh Macrae Park.

Because of high gas prices, they aren't offering free rides, but for each way it's only a dollar.

"What we offer through an environmental standpoint is low emission vehicles, and certainly the economies of scale that we offer. For everybody that rides a bus that doesn't drive out there, that's one more car that's not polluting the environment," said Wave Transit officials.

The celebration will be held at Hugh Macrae Park on Saturday from noon until six.

They'll have over 45 environmental exhibits, local live bands and food.
