RIVERFEST is Coming !

This past year, Norristown's Riverfest won the Montgomery Happenings Award for Best Family Event in the county. This year, you can help our town retain that title.

Riverfest will take place at Riverfront Park (1 Haws Avenue) on Saturday, September 19 from about 11 am until about dusk, hosted by the Dragon Boat Club of Norristown. They'll have boat rides, kids games and crafts, live music, and best of all, pirates. Yep, pirates on the Schuylkill. So put it on your calendar, dust off your eye patches and wooden legs, and start practicing your "Avast, ye mateys" and other pirate-speak.

Hotdogs and burgers will be available for a reasonable price (proceeds will go toward the cost of the event). DBC would appreciate donations of other types of food--baked goods, fruit, cookies, candy, drinks, etc. to round out the offerings at their food table. If you can help out, contact the email at the bottom of this article.

The main music event will be Norristown's own amazing Mercury Rizing band, who'll begin their sets at 2 pm. There'll be an Open Mic earlier in the afternoon. If you want to perform, or know anyone who wants to, contact the email below.

You can also donate little prizes for the kids' games. Or donate your time. Volunteer for an hour.

I'll have more info next week about Riverfest. The more people who get involved with Riverfest, the bigger it can be. To donate goods, money or volunteer, contact Robin Parker at
