RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond ended earth week with a party.
The 5th Richmond Earth Day Festival took place along Hull Street in the Manchester District.
The celebration included a host of environmentally conscious vendors and exhibitors, as well as programs for children, workshops, local bands, artwork, entertainment and food.
Bands played and there was a large turnout for the Gear Swap from the James River Outdoor Coalition.
Ralph White, the park manager for the James River Park System, lead a fish release into the Manchester Canal for children.
And despite the threat of rain -- there were plenty of people who came out.
