POST Houston to celebrate the planet with massive art installation, vintage market, and more 🌎
HOUSTON – POST Houston will celebrate the natural world with a series of eco-friendly events on April 23.
Dubbed “Earth Sun Day,” festivities include a BMX Pro Bike Show, a vintage market, and an immersive art and activism project.
Visitors are encouraged to arrive by mass transit, bike or other forms of sustainable transportation.
Celebrations begin with Peace by Piece, a marketplace that sells and trades vintage apparel. Held 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., the event organized by Bounce Back Houston encourages recycling and upcycling.
Beginning at noon, visitors can take in a BMX performance presented by Perfection on Wheels. The bicycle stunt team will hold three performances throughout the day, at 12 p.m., 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The show is in partnership with BikeHouston, an advocacy organization dedicated to promoting biking as a safe and accessible mode of transportation across Houston.
Earth Sun Day will culminate in a massive art installation — 2,000 solar lanterns will be displayed throughout the five-acre Sky Lawn overlooking the downtown Houston skyline. Created by artist Olafur Eliasson, the art installation brings solar-promotes sustainability and serves as a tool to educate viewers about energy access.
Earth Sun Day is free to attend and open to all ages. Head here to learn more about the event.
