The musical duo VIC & STICKS performs with recycled musical instruments at 2:00 p.m. “Everyone can make a difference” through respect for one-self, for others and respect for this planet. Vic and Sticks promote a message of kindness. They sing about the three “R’s”…reduce, reuse, recycle…the Recycled Rhythm Program also talks about how recycling helps the world around us. Children learn that the best place to practice “reuse” is at their neighborhood library. The music show is fast paced and encourages audience participation, as the children in the audience become part of the Recycled Rhythm Band! For more about VIC & STICKS visit www.vicandsticks.com.

All day kids can follow the “Friendly Footprints” around the Children’s Department to learn about important environmental facts. At the end of the day all children receive a RECYCLE SHERIFF badge that makes them official protectors of the environment.
