‘Greening Up the Mountains’ in Sylva

Written by 

 The 16th annual Greening Up the Mountains street festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 27, in downtown Sylva. 

The spring festival is named for the way spring creeps up the mountainsides — a wave of green moving in succession from lower to higher elevations as leaves pop out. It began over a decade ago as a celebration of Earth Day.

Crafters, environmental groups, non-profits, local businesses and farms and nurseries will provide an engaging experience for this year’s attendees. More than a dozen bands will play over the course of the day. There is also a kid’s area, 5K race and demonstrations on sustainable lifestyles.

Stay tuned for a more detailed line-up in The Smoky Mountain News in coming weeks.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
