RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- The Third Annual Bergen County Parks EarthFest takes place on Saturday, May 14 at Overpeck County Park in Ridgefield Park.

The Bergen County Department of Parks is hosting the event in partnership with the Hackensack Riverkeeper.

This year’s event is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the rain date is Sunday, May 15.

The highlight of the event is the Recycled Regatta. This event pits teams against one another in designing and building a human-powered craft out of ordinary household items which otherwise would be destined for landfills.

The day will also feature: A festival midway featuring environmental nonprofits, green vendors, animal rescue groups and healthy-living advocates; live entertainment; children’s activities including environmental education, face painting, fishing derby and more.

There will also be a variety food trucks, each featuring distinct fare; free paddling on Overpeck Lake courtesy of Hackensack Riverkeeper; and Learn-to-Row on Overpeck Lake courtesy of Bergen County Rowers Association.

Hackensack Riverkeeper is seeking sponsors, vendors and Regatta entrants. Sponsors will receive maximum exposure through a variety of attractive promotional packages, and vendors are projected to see double the foot traffic from last year’s estimate of 3,000 participants.

The event is a fundraiser for Hackensack Riverkeeper, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
