The ReDirect Guide proudly announces the 6th annual Green Sprouts Organic Baby and Family Festival on September 25th at Peninsula Park. Green Sprouts is a community-oriented event that celebrates natural and healthy options for expecting parents and young families.
The free one-day festival will promote lead awareness and poisoning prevention, eco-friendly products, natural & healthy options for birthing and raising children, along with featuring many fun family activities. Exhibits from local green businesses and seminars focusing on natural and healthy child-rearing will round out the festivities at this joyful event.
Previous vendors have enthusiastically shared feedback that they have seen more parents at Green Sprouts wear baby carriers than in any other place or event. ReDirect wants to celebrate this phenomenon by setting the world record for the most persons (moms and dads) to be wearing baby carriers. At 1pm, ReDirect will video record parents fashioning slings, wraps, backpacks, and alike at the music stage. The slings must contain a child between the ages of birth to 14 months.
This record has never been attempted before; therefore ReDirect has a great chance of setting the record this year! Green Sprouts will be held at Peninsula Park, a close-in North Portland park that features attractions for all ages. Families attending this event can enjoy local organic fare, live music and entertainment, the Baby and Children’s Clothing swap, Cotton Babies Diaper Dash, Alma Midwifery Education & Movement Seminar Series, arts and crafts, as well as other child-parent activities.
