REDDING, Calif. -

Redding's Whole Earth and Watershed Festival expects to have about 130 exhibitors on Saturday to showcase different ways to help the earth.

The event will turn Park Marina Drive into a car-free zone from Athens Dr. to Parkview Ave. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will also be a safe lane along Cypress Ave. all the way to the entrance of City Hall, where runners walkers and bicyclists can get around.

Businesses and non-profits, along with government agencies, will take part in this event. Local performers and artists will also take part, celebrating Earth Day.

Suzie Clark is the Project Director of Shasta Community College and she is one helping with the event. Clark said this event is for everyone.

"It show the community how to re-purpose, how to recycle, how to make use of things so that they don't end up in a landfill, "said Clark.

Peggy Rebol agrees. She has put the event together for the past six years.

"Over time as technology becomes bigger and bigger, we’ve sort of removed ourselves from really understanding how much nature impacts us,” said Clark.

The Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA) will also be providing free rides all day on Saturday.
