Riverbank News - - NEWS - BY RIC McGINNIS News Cor­re­spon­dent

The Wednes­day evening Fam­ily Fun Night ses­sions in River­bank have con­cluded a three-week run.

July 25 wrapped up the fes­tiv­i­ties at Com­mu­nity Cen­ter Park, with mu­sic, food, com­mu­nity and busi­ness ex­hibitors and recre­ation ac­tiv­i­ties on hand. Gui­tarist and sing- er Ste­vie Vasquez of Keyes re­turned to en­ter­tain at­ten­dees with his unique brand of orig­i­nal acous­tic mu­sic.

Lo­rina’s Ed­i­ble Gar­den mo­bile fa­cil­ity from Escalon was on hand to help pa­trons with their her­bal and vegetable plant­ings, as well as dried spice blends, suc­cu­lents for sale, lo­tions, soaps and lip balms.

The River­bank Ro­tary Club had a booth from which they were dis­tribut­ing wa­ter to at­ten­dees, as well as in­for­ma­tion about the club and its ac­tiv­i­ties.

The city rec de­part­ment main­tained sev­eral booths, in­clud­ing a non-al­co­holic ‘Sip-n-Paint’ and a bounce house-style wa­ter slide that proved pop­u­lar with the young­sters in the 100-plus de­gree heat of the af­ter­noon/evening.

Those above av­er­age tem­per­a­tures this month have proven to be dif­fi­cult for fam­i­lies who wanted to come out to the Fun Nights, keep­ing at­ten­dance a bit on the low side, ac­cord­ing to Recre­ation De­part­ment Su­per­vi­sor Ju­lia Petit.
