FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — The 10th annual Living Green Expo hopes to inspire more than 25,000 Minnesotans this weekend to live greener.

This year’s edition features a new, expanded location on the State Fairgrounds and more than 300 exhibitors, workshops and activities.

Highlights include a “green wedding” at 11 a.m. Saturday. Organizers say a local couple’s actual wedding will demonstrate how special and everyday occasions can be more cost-conscious and environmentally friendly.

The expo also features a large exhibit Saturday and Sunday of electric vehicles, with opportunities to test ride the new Chevrolet Volt and other electric vehicles and conversions, and displays on a variety of charging stations.

The Living Green Expo is produced by the Minnesota Environmental Partnership, a coalition of 80 environmental and conservation organizations.
