CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) - Vendors at a recently completed outdoor festival featuring the Insane Clown Posse rap-metal group say they haven't been paid thousands of dollars by promoters of the yearly southern Illinois event.

The Southern Illinoisan reports that several vendors at the Gathering of the Juggalos say they've received bad checks from the promoters of the event near Cave-In-Rock.

Hardin County Sheriff Jerry Fricker says his department got a check from the promoters, Michigan-based Psychopathic Records Inc., as a donation for equipment such as protective vests and stun guns. But Fricker says that check bounced.

The festival has been staged for the past several years near Cave-In-Rock, drawing thousands of people for a week.

A message seeking comment was left Thursday with Psychopathic Records.

   As environmentalists and those who want to protect the planet celebrate the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day today, organizers of this past weekend's festivities in Forest Park urge everyone to go-green as much as possible.     Cassandra Haije, the Executive Director of St. Louis Earth Day, says protecting the planet is a daily responsibility.

   "You know while the Earth Day event is one day," Haije said.  "Our organization is actually a year round organization now. And that's the message we're trying to get across is that it's not just Earth Day, it's really everyday."

   She says the message seems to have a big audience.  Haije says the popularity of the event is evident in the size of the crowd and the number of vendors.  

   "We had 250 booths year and we actually sold out so we're going to have to go back to the drawing board for next year," said Haije.   

   Haije estimates a record crowd over 35,000 attended the Earth Day celebration this year.
