Rochester hosting MI Earth Day Fest, Nosh Pit Food Truck's organic banana jam recipe

A sure sign of spring in southeast Michigan is the MI Earth Day Fest.

It's a weekend-long Earth Day celebration in downtown Rochester that takes place Friday through Sunday.

This year, the event is moving from its former park location to a lot at Third and Water streets, across from the fire station.
