  • All day:  Garage sales, garden walks, open art studios, skill-shares.  Sign up on this form to offer a River Hop event, and we will post it here. Please contact Jennie at if you have questions.
  • 6-8 pm:  6th Annual Neighborhood Potluck Picnic. As usual, we'll have live music, and everything will be "bring your own." But this year we are renting the largest shelter at Island Park (on Island Drive). That means the show will go on rain or shine, beer and wine are allowed, and we'll have picnic tables and bathrooms--yay!  
  • 7:30 pm: Winners of the River District Scavenger Hunt will be announced. Prizes donated by local merchants!
  • 8-10 pm: Sunset Pond Pedal, family-friendly bike ride around Argo Pond. Meet at Island Park on Island Drive. This will be a "Light-the-Night" visibility awareness event. Bring your best lights and reflective gear. Prizes awarded for best lit up!
