About RiverFest

The 8th Annual RiverFest

The Friends of the Mahoning River are holding the 8th Annual RiverFest on the banks of the Mahoning River in Spring Commons Park.  This park is between the Historic B & O Station and the Mahoning River at 530 Mahoning Avenue, Youngstown.  This event is being held on Sunday, June 2nd, from Noon to 5 P.M.  We offer free parking and admission.

Celebrate the Mahoning River by enjoying a free canoe or kayak ride.  Trumbull Canoe Trails will be providing the waterway passage.  There will be environmental, educational and historical presentations about the Mahoning Valley relating to the River.  See the Raptors of Birds in Flight Sanctuary and learn about search and rescue from the trainers of the K-9 rescue dogs.  Jungle Terry will exhibit 15-20 small animals and reptiles from 1 to 2 P.M.

Children’s activities include crafts, bounce-a-round, and slides.  Boy Scouts will have a tent set up and will speak about camping and the many of the activities that the boys are involved in.  Contact Patricia Dunbar at 330-719-2337.  We’ll have good food from 5 vendors and enjoy good times.
