Clarksville’s Riverfest Festival kicked off today with the Regatta boat race

 

Clarksville Riverfest 2014Clarksville, TN – The Riverfest Regatta, presented by U.S. Bank, is not your typical boat race. The boats racing down the Cumberland River at Saturday morning, September 6th were made of cardboard or plastic bottles along with a few other approved materials.

“We always enjoy the opportunity to sponsor city events,” said Steve Kemmer of US Bank. “This is the eighth annual Riverfest Regatta, and we have been part of this event for the past several years! It’s just a great way for us to give back to the community, and they have a lot of fun! The creativity is unbelievable.”

High temperatures dominate Clarksville’s 2014 Riverfest Festival opening day

 

2014 RiverfestClarksville, TN – The opening day of Riverfest was summed up in one word, hot! I was sweating from the moment I arrived at 5:00pm, until I left at 11:00pm. A chance of rain had been forecast but thankfully did not appear, or it would’ve made it even more humid.

Crowds begin trickling in shortly before the 5:00pm opening, and things picked up steadily through the evening. Turnout was lower than expected but that was likely due to people avoiding the heat, and the forecast showers.
