If you're going to Downtown Riverfest this Saturday, August 21, you better make yourself an agenda, a list, a few notes at least, because it is going to be a busy, busy event!

The best way to explain it is that the 8th Annual Downtown Riverfest is a party on steroids, with something for everyone, from kids to adults, singles to families, and everything in between!

The official start time is 4 PM on Saturday (August 21) and things should be wrapping up at 11 PM. But until then there will be so much fun to be had, that you may not know where to begin!
