Saturday's Live It Up! On Hillsborough Street Festival has something for the greenies out there. The free, family-friendly event is also eco-friendly as well.
The festival, which celebrates Hillsborough Street's new facelift, has a designated Eco Zone, which will house the N.C. State farmers market, an organic chef competition, a mini-lecture series featuring renowned eco-friendly professors from local universities, environmental-awareness vendors and dozens of other community arts, food-and-beverage and organization activities.
The event, which runs from 1 to 10 p.m. this Saturday (Sept. 25), also includes live music all day and a kid's zone with activities. A Game Day zone features a jumbo LED TV screen broadcasting the NCSU game, guest appearances by N.C. State athletic teams and coaches and more.
