Arrive Car Free to Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival for Chance to Win Prizes

The Santa Barbara Car Free Project announced that people arriving car free to the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival on April 18-19 can register to win prizes — including the Grand Prize of round-trip tickets for two to/from Santa Barbara and Seattle or Portland aboard the Amtrak Coast Starlight in a private roomette with amazing views and meals included.

Mary Byrd, project manager with the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District, the lead agency for the car free partnership notes, “Start your Earth Day Festival experience by walking, biking, or taking the train, bus or electric shuttle to Alameda Park. Enjoy getting in touch with your community and contributing to cleaner air and a healthier planet. Then stop by our booth and register to win prizes.”

The Air Pollution Control District/Santa Barbara Car Free booth will be located near the park entrance at Anacapa and Micheltorena streets (near the bike valet parking provided by Bici Centro/Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition).

Additional "Car Free" prizes at the 2015 Santa Barbara Earth Day include: pairs of Amtrak Pacific Surfliner tickets; a one-night's stay at the Best Western PLUS Pepper Tree Inn; a 10-ride pass from Clean Air Express; pairs of Santa Barbara Maritime Museum tickets; roundtrip transportation and two seats at a 2015 Dodgers Game via Santa Barbara Airbus; a massage at the Spa at Belmond El Encanto; passes to the Santa Barbara Zoo and 10-ride bus passes from Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
