A few food vendors were located in the area which is set up on the grounds behind O’Charley’s restaurant. The main attractions were the assorted inflatables and bouncy houses that kept kids entertained throughout the evening.

Numerous food trucks were set up in front of McGregor Park’s main pavilion. A variety of vendors lined the entire pathway, from the pavilion to the boat ramp.

Hundreds enjoyed music, food, and fun on the opening night of this year’s Riverfest.
