The Region : Earth Festival Needs Helpers

Organizers of the Arroyo Seco Earth Festival '93 in Pasadena are looking for volunteers to help staff the fourth annual event, which celebrates Earth Day.

The Earth Festival will be celebrated April 24 in Brookside Park and the Rose Bowl area. Earth Day will fall on Thursday, April 22. About 15,000 people attended the one-day festival last year, organizers said.

This year's event is expected to draw a larger crowd because several bands will perform throughout the day, organizers said.

About 200 volunteers are needed to help direct traffic, assist with an Earth Parade and set up 12 "villages," which will feature themes such as a global village, nature, and water and energy. About 200 exhibitors will participate at the event.

Earth Festival '93 volunteers are scheduled to meet for training and an orientation at 7 p.m. April 15 at La Casita, a house at 111 S. Arroyo Blvd. in Pasadena. Information: (818) 397-6000.
