HEALTH: Earth Day Expo Brightens Rainy Day
EARTH DAY EXPO OUTSHINES STORMY WEATHER
A steady rain and chill in the air couldn’t dampen the scene inside Stonehenge’s Ritz Plaza lobby on Sunday as residents welcomed an Earth Day Expo hosted by Natural Awakenings Magazine in New York. The free event was open to the public, with acclaimed women’s advocate Sierra Bender setting the tone with a drumming and sage-burning tribute to Mother Earth. Good food, music and vibes were on the agenda all day with high-octane, live performances by Brooklyn’s own Brown Rice Family, New Yorker Social Dance Club, Denitia Odigie and DJ Cocody. Children’s entertainment included storytelling, juggling and face painting. Even X96.3 radio personalities Lulu and LaLa of the Luis Jimenez Show joined the Earth Day festivities.
Natural Awakenings Magazine and Stonehenge Properties have launched an initiative encouraging a more holistic approach to living in Manhattan by bridging the gap between Stonehenge residents and the communities where they live. The 2012 Earth Day Expo with Stonehenge is part of a unique wellness series that offers a platform to support and promote healthier lifestyles.
