HAWLEY -- It was freezing Wednesday morning in our area, enough to have people looking forward to warmer days ahead.

We found folks in downtown Hawley, Wayne County, wrapping trees with brightly colored fabric.

It's a way to draw attention to the upcoming Hawley Earth Fest the weekend after Easter.

There will be all sorts of activities from Friday through Sunday in the Hawley area and organizers hope the weather cooperates.

"It's going to be an exciting weekend, species parade in Bingham Park, kids and families are encouraged to come down and get their spring on," said Simon Knox with the Downtown Hawley Partnership.

There will live music at the Hawley Silk Mill's Boiler Room

The Earth Fest will also coincide with an earth day festival at the PPL Environmental Learning Center at Lake Wallenpaupack the same weekend.
