TOWANDA - Spring is here and that means summer and Riverfest. This year's festival represents our 26th year and the planning committee is in full swing planning all the fun activities.

Families come from far and wide to catch this popular event. This Festival features tons of entertainment, fabulous food, crafts and a carnival.

Mary Ann Harris and Jim Haight of the Riverfest committee are asking for your help in sponsoring the fireworks show that has become a first class production, because of the generous sponsors in the past they have been able to offer this show free for everyone to enjoy as well as all the entertainment, and there is no admission charge. Therefore, Riverfest depends on outside funds. They hope you feel this event is worthy of your support.

Without the financial support of dedicated individuals, small and large business owners, and community-oriented industries, they could not do this event.

Riverfest is held on the banks of the beautiful Susquehanna River downtown Towanda.

Save the dates Aug. 15, 16 and 17, for this special end of summer festival and see a great ending to the summer of 2014 with their "Fire Over Water," finale.

The contact person for Riverfest is Mary Ann Harris at (570) 637-1131 or Jim Haight at (570) 268-9207.
