Saturday morning our daughter, two of HER daughters, and their cousin Sammie
went with us to the second annual Riverfest.
Here they are standing in front of the bridge
that spans one of three rivers that converge in Fort Wayne.
Features we enjoyed: free canoe and kayak excursions,
free bottled water and snacks,
free balloons, free kids' carnival with free prizes,
many hands-on activities (cookie decorating, crafts, etc.)
plenty of porta-potties and trash cans
an amazing number of upbeat volunteers,
a silent auction of painted rocking chairs,
a trail of arts and crafts vendors, local bands, food vendors,
pontoon rides, a boat show and parade...
(We weren't able to stay for the evening fireworks.)
"Thanks" seems inadequate to express our appreciation
to the corporate sponsors and volunteers for our amazing experience!
