While the live 2020 Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival Has been canceled due Covid-19, the rain barrel silent auction will continue! The Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival is excited to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the original Earth Day with this "social distancing" auction event. We appreciate your support of the Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival so that it may continue in 2021, but we also appreciate your support of the talented local high school students who creatively painted these rain barrels!
About Rain Barrels
A rain barrel is a container that collects and stores the water from roofs and downspouts for future uses such as watering lawns, gardens, and house plants; cleaning off gardening tools; and washing your car. Rain barrels help to lower your water bills, particularly in the summer months by collecting thousands of gallons of free water a year that you don’t have to buy!
Rain barrels are also important for our environment because they help reduce water pollution by decreasing the amount of stormwater runoff reaching our streams and rivers. Using rain barrels is a great way to decrease your household’s impact on local waterways and to help you become a good steward of our local waterways.
Thank you for your support!
