The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is encouraging visitors of all ages to participate in a sculpture contest which will be one of the featured events at its “Every Day is Earth Day” celebration, Saturday, April 26, at its admission-free Power Vista. The sculptures should be made of recyclable materials, such as egg and milk cartons, newspapers, toilet paper rolls, plastic grocery bags, and brought to the Power Vista during the event. Artists are encouraged to be as creative and imaginative as possible, and to draw inspiration from the world around them. The event which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., features many “green-themed” activities including two shows by “Solar Punch, “ a rock band – using all solar-powered instruments. Enjoy free rides on the Niagara Scenic Trolley between the Niagara Power Vista and Gorge Discovery Center. Parking and admission at the Power Vista, located at 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston, is always free. For more information, contact the Niagara Project Power Vista at 716-286-6661 or email
