Throughout the Fall City Days street fair, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 15, in downtown Fall City, be on the lookout for the Trash Apes.

These garbage gorillas show everyone just how easy it is to throw away trash.

They're not real apes, but Seattle-area human performance artists, and their project was conceived by Christian Swenson with help from King County's 4Culture organization as part of its Site-Specific Performance Series.

The performance is meant to entertain as well as raise awareness to the number of issues within the human community.

Trained to recycle, the Trash Apes will be roaming around downtown Fall City, picking up after the humans and interacting with them. They might stop to pick gnats out of your spouse’s hair or walk away with your Coke.
