Clarksville Riverfest has large turnout despite Weather

 

Clarksville RiverFestClarksville, TN – “In practical terms, this year’s Clarksville Riverfest was a success,” Clarksville Parks and Recreation’s Rob Rayburn said. “We still had a great turnout, and though weather was a factor, the rain held off long enough for lots of folks to come out and enjoy some great music, food and fun.”

Weather was the big story at this year’s Riverfest, with delays on Friday and then an early wrap on Saturday, Rayburn and his team were forced to make some tough decisions.

This year's Riverfest was hindered by rain, which delayed Friday's events and forced organizers to cancel several of Saturday's scheduled performers, including headliner Sister Hazel.
