Changes are coming to Riverfest this year

Duck Derby tickets on sale now until July 11

DUNNSTOWN — Although it will have some major changes, Riverfest is still on for Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11.

The two-day annual festival will take place in the parking lot of the Dunnstown Fire Company where company volunteers will be selling food from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Kyle Coleman, Woodward Township supervisor chairman, said.

The fire company will be selling hot sausages, burgers, hot dogs and fries both Friday and Saturday beginning at 11 a.m.

Throughout the festival members of the township’s Recreation Committee will be selling Duck Derby tickets for $5 each. Although the derby won’t be able to take place along the Susquehanna River like normal, there will still be a drawing, Coleman said.

The drawing will take place at the fire company on Saturday at 5 p.m. with participants given the chance to win $1,000 in a first place cash prize. The second place winner will walk away with $250 and third place $100.

Tickets are on sale now at the Second Cup Restaurant in Dunnstown and the Puff and Snuff, Coleman said.

You do not have to be present for the drawing to win a prize, he added.

The money raised from the drawing will be put toward fireworks which will take place at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 12.

“They will take place after the city’s Summer Concert Series at the floating stage,” he said.

Coleman asks that anyone who plans to come to the festival please follow CDC guidelines such as wearing a mask and social distancing.
