Earth Day Dallas project manager Britt Krieger talks about Earth Day Dallas at Fair Park -- a family-friendly, free event. Pets are allowed. Editor's note: This is the first Earth Day Dallas at Fair Park, not the first time Earth Day has been observed in Dallas.

NBC 5 invites you to join the celebration at Earth Day Dallas on Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22 at Fair Park in Dallas. Be inspired to lead a more sustainable lifestyle with exhibits, entertainment and education for all ages.
