ABINGDON, Va. -

Communities are using the weekend to hold special Earth Day celebrations.

The Town of Abingdon was one of those.

Several vendors were gathered at the Fields Penn House for the event.

Some of those vendors included Habitat for Humanity, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and Sustain Abingdon.

Organizers tell us this event is just one of many the town is using to move towards a sustainable environment.

The event featured several additional activities for children including face painting, crafts, and singing.
