Binghamton, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) One of the longest-running Earth Day celebrations in the country is back for the 24th year in a row.

SUNY Broome Community College hosted Earth Fest 2014 on Saturday.

There were exhibits for kids, live music and giveaways.

Fuel-efficient cars were also on display.

The college was one of four venues to host an Earth Fest event. Ross Park Zoo, the Discovery Center, and the Roberson Museum also participated.

Attendees could take a free trolley service to each of the exhibit sites.

Organizers said they hope people left the event with the vision of a cleaner world.

"It's important to take care of our earth," said Chris Burger, Chair of Earth Fest. "It supports our life, and clean air and clean water and it's important for a healthy life."

Organizers were looking forward to a big turnout at Earth Fest, with more than 2,000 people expected to attend.
