Tucson held its eco-friendly parade celebrating the 20th annual Earth Day Festival at the Reid Park Zoo.  The theme for this year's festival is light the way to a bright future.

Several businesses, non-profits and youth groups participated with "eco" focused topics.  Exhibits provided information on environmental products or issues like water conservation, air quality and household hazardous waste.

Alternate-fuel vehicle exhibitors also showed how their auto, bike or motorcycle runs on clean fuels such as bio diesel and even waste vegetable oil.

The parade comes early, Earth Day is April 22nd.
