Free tickets are available to attend former President Bill Cinton's address Monday to the Bluegrass Youth Sustainability Council Earth Day Celebration at Rupp Arena.

Clinton was originally scheduled to speak to about 6,000 students, parents, teachers and community leaders from noon to 1 p.m. at the Alltech arena at the Kentucky Horse Park, but the event has since been moved to Rupp Arena.

According to the Fayette County Public Schools, there will be tickets available for parents, guardians, friends and school community partners at 9 a.m. Monday on a first-come, first-served basis at the Rupp Arena box office. Use the password "sustainability" to receive a ticket. There were still about 2,000 tickets available about 10:30 a.m.

Students are attending through school field trips. Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. People must be seated by 11:45 a.m.

The Bluegrass Youth Sustainability Council is a coalition of students from Fayette County public and private high schools that focuses on improving sustainability in Lexington. This is the group's first year.
