On Thursday, April 11, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex – which Delaware North operates for NASA – hosted its annual Earth Day vendor fair.
The 40 vendors included an autonomous bus, local organizations and businesses, and Kennedy Space Center contractors. One vendor prepared vegan food for guests to try, another had a snake for people to hold, and Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) highlighted the new Piezoelectric tiles inside the park that turn energy from walking into electricity. There was also six butterfly releases, with the first taking place before the visitor complex opened for associates and Earth Day vendors and volunteers.
The day was an eventful one for Delaware North associates at the visitor complex, as they also managed a higher-than-usual volume of guests, media and logistics as a result of a previously scrubbed SpaceX Falcon Heavy Rocket launch being rescheduled for April 11.
