TAVARES — Organizers of the Second Annual Lake County Green Fair are currently accepting exhibitor applications for the event scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Wooton Park in Tavares.
All commercial, not-for-profit and governmental entities that are promoting green products and services are invited to participate in the Lake County Green Fair. The cost for each exhibitor at the Second Annual Green Fair is free for not-for-profit groups and $25 for businesses.
The first Green Fair was deemed a success by organizers. More than 1,500 visitors and 75 exhibitors attended the fair.
“The Green Fair’s attendance was remarkable,” said Amye King, Director of the Lake County Department of Growth Management. “I think the community as a whole was eager and wanted to learn more about how they can be environmentally friendly. The Green Fair gives local businesses, organizations and governmental entities the opportunity to share some of these sustainable-living ideas with the community in a fun, fair-like atmosphere.”
In addition to environmental information shared at the event, the Green Fair provided an opportunity for the community to properly and safely dispose of household hazardous chemicals, recyclables and old thermometers and thermostats containing mercury.
