RiverDays festival is close, inexpensive and fun for all ages

The middle of August is fast approaching, which means it's time to head down to New Richmond for the annual RiverDays festival. “We've got a lot of stuff going on,” Richard Feldkamp, New Richmond Riverfest president, said. “There is gambling, carnival rides, all types of beverages, music on stage continuously and it's just a real good time.” RiverDays begins 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19 and ends at 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21. Each day of the event is loaded with activities and attractions. Events at RiverDays include sightseeing cruises, demonstrations, fireworks, a car show, dinner cruises and of course the Cardboard Boat Regatta, which will take place Saturday, Aug. 20. The regatta, which re-

Annual event returns August 19-21 quires participants to transform cardboard, paint and tape into a boat that can actually float, is a popular event at RiverDays. There will be a variety of categories at this year's race including the new Cardboard Man race that will test the endurance of those brave enough to enter. “It is a really fun event,” Ray Perszyk, event organizer, said about the regatta. Perszyk said they give out over 20 awards after the race, ranging from the Titanic award, for best sinking, to the people's choice award. RiverDays will also feature Paddle Blast this year. The event will be like a mini Paddle Fest and will start at 9 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 21. Feldkamp said here will be boats available to rent, and he hopes the event

will bring a lot of paddlers to RiverDays. Feldkamp said much of the event will be similar to last year with a few different bands and activities. He said he is most excited about the bands. “The fact that the Casinos are going to be here,” Feldkamp said. “I think that anyone that is from the '60s will remember the Casinos and love to come see them.” He said there are two stages and a variety of entertainers this year including Midnight Special,

East Fork Junction, One Man Electric Band and more. Feldkamp said with today's economy being like it is, RiverDays is the perfect place to spend a weekend. “It is someplace that is close, it's inexpensive to get here, once you get here it is free and there are plenty of activities for everyone to get involved in,” Feldkamp said.
