RiverFest 2019

Saturday was a fantastic day for RiverFest 2019.  Great crowd, wonderful activites, innovating vendors, environmental education, food, and paddlers on the Lackawanna River.  We thank all our sponsors for their generous support of RiverFest 2019 and all the volunteers who helped make this day a SUCCESS!

More highlights to come!!

On Saturday May 11, 2019, paddlers will take to the water and revelers will fill the banks of the Lackawanna River. A day of exercise and fun, RiverFest draws the community outdoors after the long winter to celebrate the Valley and the River that runs through it.

The LRCA moves forward in 2019, providing service involving citizens of our watershed with conservation and stewardship of the River, its tributaries and water resources.
