Waynesboro’s Riverfest, an organization dedicated to promoting environmental conservation and watershed stewardship, will host its annual Riverfest on SATURDAY, MAY 4, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Constitution Park in Waynesboro, VA. The event is free and open to the public.
This event takes place by the South River in downtown Waynesboro and will include a wide variety of environmentally themed activities and programs. Presentations this year will include A program by The Wildlife Center of Virginia, a local hospital for native wildlife. Reptile World, a crowd favorite, will return for two presentations about snakes and other reptiles found around the world.
Free activities include canoe rides down the South River, face-painting, games for children, arts and crafts, and a variety of other activities with exhibitors in the large exhibit tent.
The day will end with the Great South River Duck Race, during which participants “adopt” a rubber duck and watch as ducks race down a stretch of the South River. Ducks are corralled and collected downstream; the top five winners (plus the last place duck) receive cash and gift certificate prizes from a variety of local businesses. Ducks may be adopted prior to the race or the day of Riverfest.
