Riverfest was truly bigger and better than ever!

 

Riverfest 2010It’s been several days after the end of the 2010 Riverfest Celebration, and for those who worked the two day festival, life is returning to normal. The hard working folks with the Clarksville Department of Parks & Recreation along the entertainers, and hundreds of volunteers ensured that the visitors could simply enjoy some good wholesome family fun.

This was the first year that Clarksville Online and Discover Clarksville was selected to document the festival as much as was humanly possible. Roland Woodworth, Ashley and Meghan Hamilton, and Bill Larson were given the job of photographing everything in the tiniest of detail, while Mark Haynes shot hours and hours of raw video footage, and Sue Culverhouse took it all in to get material for her wonderful articles!

Intermittent rain plagued Riverfest early on Friday afternoon.
