RiverFest 2011 to be held on Saturday, August 13
From the press release:
RiverFest 2011, a celebration of the French Broad River hosted by RiverLink and the Asheville Radio Group, takes place at French Broad River Park on Saturday, August 13 from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.
RiverLink encourages everyone to gather coworkers, friends and family members and create a raft for the "Anything that Floats" parade. About the only rule is that the craft must float, and it must be removed from the festival grounds upon completion of the race. The registration deadline for "yachts" is Wednesday, August 10.
Landlubbers will find plenty of fun activities at RiverFest 2011, like the Music Showcase & Competition featuring local great music acts. Local restaurants will be serving up some yummy treats, and there will be friendly competition in Frisbee golf and the local favorite, corn hole. Support local artists and vendors in the craft village.
RiverFest offers lots of fun for kids, too. Kids can ride, skate, walk, run, and skip in costume with opportunities to win prizes for most creative, cutest and funniest in the Kids Parade.
Volunteers are still needed to make this a fun and successful event! In exchange for their time and hard work, volunteers receive a free t-shirt and a free drink per shift. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact the RiverLink's Director of Volunteer Services, Dave Russell, at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 252-8474, ext. 11.
