hree rivers: How about creating a festival that actually gets people on the river, or at least on the riverbanks?

That's the idea behind IPFW RiverFest 2010, an inaugural event Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at midnight on the banks of the St. Joe River by IPFW.

River activities include pontoon rides, canoe and kayak races, a sea plane and ski show, fire cauldrons on the river and fireworks. More than 40 kids activities and games will be on the west side of the river. On the east side is an arts and crafts festival, musical entertainment starting at 4 p.m. and food. And except for the food, all activities are free.

The rivers are the focal point, said Irene Walters, executive director of university relations and communications at IPFW. While IPFW is the host, Steel Dynamics is the event's title sponsor. RiverFest complements a new local initiative, Friends of the Rivers.
