Join the ecofriendly parade

Dear Editor:

A year ago, people came from up- and downvalley to join the Prius Parade ” 16 Priuses and other hybrids, a mini-car and a bio-diesel truck ” for Basalt River Days.

This year, the Town Parade also will include the rainbow-colored BioBus decorated by students in the valley, which is slated, in 2008, to go across country to New York City ” using waste vegetable oil, bio-diesel and solar energy.

Efficient vehicles can assemble Saturday morning, Aug. 18, by 11:15 sharp in Basalt. Follow bright green signs to the parking lot, River View Offices, Elk Run and Two Rivers Rd., Basalt, to parade down Main Street after the fire engine and town Prius.
