The 44th annual Earth Day was observed this week. Locally, the cities of Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach held large weekend celebrations.  The Okaloosa event was held at Liza Jackson Park off Miracle Strip Parkway (Highway 98).

After several cold, rainy days, the sun shined brightly over the park Saturday as Fort Walton Beach welcomed residents to the city's 8th Annual Earth and Arbor Day Celebration.
