Another great Oak Cliff Earth Day was held Sunday at Lake Cliff Park in Dallas. The cloudy weather was perfect  – and cool, as were the folks we saw at the festival. Many brought along their canine companions, with some decked-out for the annual Mutt Strutt.

Earth Day is officially celebrated April 22, but North Texas cities stretch out the holiday for four weeks starting in late March.

That's good news for greenies because that means fewer events overlap and you can attend an ecofest every week for a month. Check out the line up below – all events are free.
