Summerfest and raffle set in Woodward Twp.

WOODWARD — Woodward Township has reaffirmed that there will again be no Riverfest this summer due to COVID concerns.

Supervisor Kyle Coleman announced the decision this week, saying the township will still sell raffle tickets for $5 to raise money for fireworks to be set off along the river on July 10.

The township has held a Riverfest every year since the 1990s to raise money for development and now upkeep of the boat launch, as well as Riverview Park just upriver from the launch.

The event typically includes vendors, food, music, a Duck Derby and fireworks.

However, due COVID precautions, the event will be pushed back to a hopeful 25th anniversary in 2022.

The fireworks will still go off Saturday night, July 10, during a Summerfest fundraiser to be hosted by Dunnstown Volunteer Fire Co.

Tickets can be purchased at both the Second Cup restaurant and the Puff n’ Snuff in Dunnstown.

Summerfest will be held July 9 and 10 at Riverview Park and will have craft and food venders, as well as music on a stage by area bands.

Tickets for the raffle will also be sold during the festival.

Winners of the raffle have the chance to win one of three cash prizes, including a top prize of $1,000 , a secondary prize of $250, and a third prize of $100.

Also during the supervisors meeting on Tuesday, Supervisor Wayne Love gave a public announcement that the boundary dispute between Woodward and Dunnstable townships was decided in court and has been finalized in Woodward’s favor, thus putting the issue to rest.

Supervisors gave a unanimous “yes” vote to having the boundary marked and put on official maps.
