October 4-6, 2013 Riverfest is a wonderful family celebration of the area's rich heritage. It features an enormous street fair with food and crafts, live performances, fireworks and more. Special events include the annual Great Waiter's Wine Race, boat rides, military exhibits and a regatta for handmade, self-powered rafts. Landlubbers appreciate the Run the River 8K Race and a classic car show. A kids' area set up in the Cotton Exchange parking lot offers face painting, interactive games, arts and crafts activities, entertainment, rides, displays, a petting zoo and more. Events are free.
