WXXI and the Little Theatre are proud to support Greentopia, the annual interactive festival that spotlights what our region is doing to embrace the green movement. The festival runs September 10-15, and in anticipation of it, WXXI-TV has been presenting an encore broadcast of Ken Burns’ six-part series The National Parks, September 2-7 at 9 p.m.
If you visited WXXI's booth at last weekend's Clothesline Festival and thought that it brought to an end to Rochester's "festival season", I have good news! Coming this weekend will be a celebration of sustainable living to be held in Rochester's High Falls District. The Greentopia Festival – the newest of Rochester festivals – will be held Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18.
I’m sure you have been following the battle in Washington for a solution to the debt crisis. As the framework of the plan is put in place, we look on with interest here at WXXI, because the future of public broadcasting may be significantly affected.
