Winterfest has been a Pearland tradition for 12 years, said Carry Watts of Pearland Parks & Recreation. In efforts to preserve the natural environment, increase recycling at a city sponsored events and educate citizens on environmental concerns, this year's Winterfest was a "green" event.
"This was the first time Pearland Parks and Recreation recycled materials from the event, and it was a huge success," Watts said. "Our partnership with First Choice Power significantly reduced trash at the festival and educated hundreds of family's on how a simple task such as recycling makes a positive impact on our environment."
