Victoria Earth Walk in 32nd year

This year's Earth Walk event promises to be the most celebrated one yet.

No better time than Earth Week for getting outside, especially with Victoria’s annual Earth Walk in its 32nd year, which promises to be the most celebrated one yet.

This year, Earth Walk has teamed up with Creatively United for the Planet, a group of dedicated volunteers who have organized a weekend long celebration of Victoria’s grassroots community. The event will include a concert of Masala’s World Percussion performance, environmental fair, parade featuring Samba de Solie and dancing, all starting at noon on Sat., April 20, at Centennial Square.

At 12:30pm a parade to St. Ann’s Academy will join the larger event organized by Creatively United for the Planet.

“We are very lucky to have a cutting-edge activist community here on the west coast,” says Earth Walk Victoria founder Steve Filipovic. “Earth Walk is our opportunity to celebrate those activists and recognize them and thank them for their efforts in championing the many issues that face our society.”

The walk is family, pet and kid friendly. M
