Record Observer - - Community -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Cor­sica River Con­ser­vancy will host a new com­mu­nity fes­ti­val, Cor­sica River Day, from noon to 4 p.m. Sun­day, Sept. 18, at the river­front at Cor­sica River Yacht Club, lo­cated at 589 Con­quest Road, off Spa­niard Neck Road in Cen­tre­ville.

The event is free and is a cel­e­bra­tion the Cor­sica River, bring­ing fam­ily fun, food ven­dors and live mu­sic to the wa­ter­front.

Fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties will in­clude free kayak­ing and ca­noe­ing on the Cor­sica River, a fish­ing derby, pony rides, a pet­ting zoo, face paint­ing, pump­kin art and ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties.

It’s the Pits and the Com­merce Street Cream­ery will of­fer bar­be­cue, burg­ers, ice cream and sweet treats for sale. Mu­sic will be pro­vided by blue­grass band Danny Pais­ley and the South­ern Grass.

Af­ter a decade of hold­ing a fall fes­ti­val at Bloom­field Farm to pro­mote wa­ter­shed aware­ness, the Cor­sica River Con­ser­vancy moved the event to the wa­ter­front to show­case the beauty and recre­ational op­por­tu­ni­ties of the Cor­sica River.

“We’re ex­cited about the new part­ner­ship with the Cor­sica River Yacht Club that made this event pos­si­ble and helps us in­tro­duce more peo­ple to what the river has to of­fer,” said CRC Pres­i­dent Steve Miller.

Miller said the goal of Cor­sica River Day is to fos­ter un­der­stand­ing about what can be done to im­prove the health of the river, while bring­ing the com­mu­nity to­gether for an en­joy­able fall fes­ti­val.
