The statewide festival to promote education, recreation, and conservation of Illinois' waterways is coming to Alton's riverfront today.  The Mississippi Earthtones Festival will be held at Riverfront Park from 12pm-11pm.  Among the attractions will be an eco-village with earth-friendly products and services, and nature craft vendors.

Eddie Agha with the TNI Astronomy Club will be there with the Hydrogen Alpha Solar Scope, which allows you to look directly at the sun without damaging your eyes.
