And PGC's special guests: FASHIONATION: March of the Fashionistas. All those great designers and eco divas you've clamored for on the runway the last two years (seen in the first two videos above) will be available in an informal gathering for you to chat with, purchase their clothing, or enjoy their live mannequins as they mix and mingle face to face with the festival crowd. Directed by GA/GI Stylist, Kristin Barker and her fashion assistant, Eric Abraham. 6pm-9pm.

The Group Against Smog & Pollution (GASP), who just moved to  5135 Penn Avenue, will be projecting recently-discovered cartoons and a short film that their nonprofit made 40 years ago.
