BELLAGAIA Egypt FireVeilSun KansasNew! RiverWalk: Saturday, June 18

Rain or shine, plan to "go with the flow" of RiverWalk, a day-long celebration of art, the beautiful Deerfield River and our Beautiful Earth.

The day kicks off with the Friends of the Arms Library Riverwalk Book sale - 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Shops open later that morning and then at 2:00pm, educational displays, fly fishing demonstrations, and children's activities -- including sidewalk decorating and face painting -- will all take place along with an Art Walk featuring artist signings, receptions, and openings. At 4pm, the “Frog & Flower Stroll" brings the community together for a festive walk winding up at the Potholes for a river dance finale.

The Art Walk continues through the early evening hours and then, at 8pm, Bella Gaia will perform in concert at Memorial Hall. This family friendly, highly visual performance delights young and old with original music and vibrant scenes from space looking down on our Bella Gaia - beautiful earth. The Bella Gaia concert is a ticketed event; other RiverWalk activities are free of charge (though donations are always welcome!).
