A look back at 2015

Hundreds of visitors turned out for the 6th annual Green Expo at the National Sports Center on April 25, 2015. The City of Coon Rapids partnered with the City of Blaine and the National Sports Center for a second year in a row to provide a larger space for the growing annual event. Over 65 local exhibitors, ranging from energy specialists to government and educational resources, gathered to share sustainability ideas, products and services to promote sustainable living in Minnesota. 2015 boasted the highest turnout yet and with great additions like the the Wellness Center – the best place to learn about alternative health solutions and the ever popular “make your own” non-toxic cleaner, event popularity doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

A big THANK YOU goes to all the wonderful volunteers, exhibitors, and donors that made the event a success.

The National Sports Center is located at 1700 105th Ave. NE, Blaine, MN 55449.
