The 6th Annual Long Beach Green Port Fest is this Saturday

Sep 29, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Have you ever wanted to see towering gantry cranes, barking sea lions, and massive cargo ships?

Well, this Saturday you’ll be able to ride along on a double-decker passenger train to see the cargo terminal in action, watch dockworkers, truckers, and crane operators unloading their containers to prepare them for distribution to stores all over the country.

Or maybe you want to see and learn about the variety of wildlife that lives in the Long Beach harbor– from lobsters to anemones and more. Well, then this year’s Green Fest is definitely an event to definitely enjoy–but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

On Saturday, October 2nd, the Port of Long Beach will be hosting the 6th Annual Green Port Fest. All of the fun, and I do mean fun, starts at 10:00am and lasts until 3:00pm.

Here’s a sample of just one of the planned activities:

Wyland Living Green Fair, a one-of-kind interactive exhibit by world famous muralist and environmental activist Wyland. Help paint a super-sized canvas, experience computer exhibits, a running river, a special effects theater and more.

Did you know that the Port of Long Beach supports 30,000 jobs in Long Beach, 316,000 in Southern California and nearly 1.5 million throughout the nation?

Amazing!

If you’re driving to the event, limited parking is available. Better yet, if you ride your bike there, free bike valet service will be provided by the LB Cyclists, who BTW, are also providing lead guided bicycle rides from Downtown Long Beach.  To check out the times, here’s the link.

BTW, I forgot to tell you the admission price for all of this fun.

It’s free and it doesn’t get any better!

You can attend the 6th Annual Green Port Fest, and still have time to go the Eagle Rock Music Festival.
