This year’s Run for the River is part of something WAY bigger – the 1st annual Rock the River Community Festival. Expect some amazing music, art, and craft beer – plus a variety of local vendors and family events. All of it is happening at Old Mill Park from 11 am until 8 pm on June 6. If you are a river lover, you can also compete in the 35th Great White Water Canoe Race. Go to the ACA website for details and registration.
