Kids play at GreenFest.

With more than 200 exhibitors, educational forums, live entertainment on four stages and a host of interactive activities, there's something for everyone at this year's Boston GreenFest at Boston's City Hall Plaza. This year's theme is "Water -- Let Every Drop Count." Water represents an $80 billion industry, and throughout the three-day festival, attendees will understand how water is involved in everything they do and how it needs to be valued as a finite resource. Throughout the entire festival will be ongoing events and destinations designed to educate and entertain, including an EcoFashion Shoppe, the MIT FAB LAB, the Boston GreenFilm Fest, the local food emporium, the EcoBazaar, and four stages of live entertainment. The festival also offers an EcoKids Center, an interactive area devoted exclusively to those under the age of 14, jam-packed full of fun activities including robots, eco-poetry, eco-art, games, inflatables, face painting, a stage with live performances from RhymeZwell, storytellers, international artists and much more. In addition to water, there are five other festival focuses: Green Cities, Transportation, Energy, EcoFashion and Health-Food-Fitness. Throughout the three days, there will be interactive exhibits, workshops, presentations, Eco-games, continuous live entertainment and much more. Thurs., Aug. 15, 5-10 p.m.; Fri., Aug. 16, noon - 10 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 17, 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Free. One City Hall Plaza, Boston.
