Kids and adults alike can cel­e­brate the St. Mary’s River at the 14th An­nual RiverFest, on Satur­day, Sept. 22. Fes­tiv­i­ties will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, at His­toric St. Mary’s City.

Visi­tors to the event will be able to dis­cover 101 ways to pro­tect and en­joy lo­cal wa­ter­ways. En­joy live mu­sic, fea­tur­ing the mu­si­cal duo of Michael and Car­rie Kline as well as the Ch­e­sa­peake Pub­lic Charter School cho­rus and guests.

Also, guests can try kayak­ing, sein­ing and other en­vi­ron­men­tal ac­tiv­i­ties. Visit ex­hibits about lo­cal flora and fauna and take home a free Bay-Friendly Back­yards book­let. Get your face painted and come face-to-face with birds of prey, snakes, oys­ters and other sel­dom-seen neigh­bors.

The St. Maries Citty Mili­tia will hold its an­nual muster in con­junc­tion with RiverFest. Ex­pe­ri­ence the sights, sounds, and smells of a 17th-cen­tury mili­tia assem­bly as ci­ti­zen-sol­dier re-en- ac­tors pre­pare to de­fend the colony against Vir­gini­ans and pirates. March along as mili­tia men prac­tice drills, and fol­low smoke and fire to a mock bat­tle and mus­ket demon­stra­tion. Visit mili­tia fam­i­lies car­ry­ing out ev­ery day chores in camp.
