The Alton Marketplace and Piasa Palisades Group of the Sierra Club are teaming up again this year to bring the 9th Annual Green Gift Bazaar to the Riverbend. This year the Bazaar will feature a few new things including, recycling stations and a free film festival spotlighting three environmentally themed films focusing on water issues, local food and environmental stewardship.

Sierra Club Conservation Field Representative Christine Favilla says that everything they collect will ultimately help local businesses.

The Community Center on West Third Street in downtown Alton will once again be the site for the event, which takes place Saturday from 10 am until 4 pm and admission is free.
