This year’s Water Festival theme announced
As winter continues in the Three Rivers area, a group of hardworking volunteers has already begun to plan the 2019 63rd annual Three Rivers Water Festival.
The annual event, considered by many to be the unofficial start of the summer season in Three Rivers, will run from noon Thursday, June 13, through Sunday afternoon, June 16, and promises to feature many familiar favorites, as well as some new and exciting family-oriented activities.
The theme for this year’s event is “TR’s Superheroes.” With that in mind, the Water Festival Committee encourages participants to incorporate a “superheroes” theme in their events.
The Water Festival will feature many returning favorites, including the popular Lions Club Ox Roast, the Women’s Club Pie Booth, KidsZone, the Midway Carnival by Schmidt’s Family Amusements, the Arts and Crafts Show in Scidmore Park, the Commercial Vendor Marketplace (also in Scidmore Park), the Water Festival Parade, the popular Car Cruise and Show, the Lions Club Turtle Derby, the popular fireworks display, and many more crowd pleasers.
This year’s Water Festival Parade will open the celebration on Thursday evening, June 13, with the “rain date” on Friday evening, should the need arise. Parade participants are encouraged to consider the “TR’s Superheroes” theme in planning their entries. As the committee continues to plan for the event, they welcome suggestions from the public for local “Superheroes” to be considered as the Grand Marshall for this year’s parade.
Area residents are encouraged to watch for more details about this annual event as the Festival approaches.
