A look back at 2016

Hundreds of visitors turned out for the 7th annual Green Expo at the National Sports Center on April 23, 2016. The City of Coon Rapids partnered with the City of Blaine and the National Sports Center to provide a larger space for the growing annual event. Exhibitors ranged from energy specialists to government and educational resources and were able to share sustainability ideas, products and services to promote sustainable living in Minnesota. The ever popular “make your own” non-toxic products was available to bring home. The popularity of this expanding and changing event doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 Green Expo at the National Sports Center.

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