The sixth annual RIVERfair will be held on Saturday, August 10 at Keizer Rapids Park. The one-day festival will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; admission is free. Parking is available at the park.
Staged by the Making Keizer Better Foundation, RIVERfair will feature vendor booths, live entertainment, a beer and wine garden, a disc golf tournament presented by the Professional Disc Golf Association and other activities for all ages.
An off-site element of the festival is the RIVERfair Cruz-In, a car show that will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Schoolhouse Square parking lot at the corner of River and Chemawa Roads. Car owners can still enter their vehicles into the show by calling Paul Pfinister at 503-949-8751. 1430 KYKN will be broadcasting live from the Cruz-In and the RIVERfair site.
Two new events have been added for 2013: a 5K run/walk and river paddle and an American Volkssport-sanctioned walk.
