Getting there
In the neighborhood? Walk or ride your bike down to the Meadow. (' The Meadow' is located roughly half way between the Pony Pasture parking lot and Rockfalls Drive)

If you're driving remember Riverside Dr. is closed from Rockfalls to Pony Pasture so you'll have to park in the Pony Pasture parking lot then take a scenic walk to the Meadow from there ( about a 5-8 minute walk), or catch a lift on the hayride. *Hayrides will be driving up and down Riverside roughly every half hour.

If you see an empty rickshaw while your waiting or walking don't hesitate to hail it for a ride- they're fun and free!.

All activities are free except the 5K and food ( hotdogs, chips and drinks)
Riverfest T shirts will be sold for $12.00

More event details will be posted as we get them.
