Last years three-day OTW festival in downtown Rockford generated 52 tons of garbage. This year, the OTW Green Committee hopes to trim that total by 10 tons.
The Green Committee has organized a number of programs for this years festival, including public service announcements with Rockford Mayor Doug Scott; an appearance at the Fourth of July parade with Rocco, the programs mascot; visits to local schools; and a six-story (fee-free for those with Waterfront passes) kids castle offering a rainforest full of educational activities.
OTW Green Committee meetings are at 5:30 p.m. on the first Monday of each month at the OTW corporate office.
