Food, games and more, oh my!

Residents from Hastings and beyond turned out this past weekend for 2018 Rivertown Days festivities.

The celebration featured a wide variety of events around town that ran from Friday, July 20, to Sunday, July 22.

Main Rivertown Days events were held at Levee Park, where the new Rotary Pavilion was put to use, staging everything from music groups to comedy acts.

Levee Park also hosted a row of classic fair foods (think savory cheese curds and giant turkey legs), a ninja warrior course, carnival and much more.

The Rivertown Days Parade was a big attraction of Sunday, July 22. The surrounding streets were full of parked cars, and the parade route was lined with chairs and blankets filled by parade viewers, especially kids eager to grab all the candy they could get.
