Activities will start with Dinner on the Bricks Thursday night, April 28. “We will have a variety of local restaurant and food providers who will be serving their finest for our residents and visitors,” Hall said. “And as you enjoy your dinner on the bricks, we will have a jazz performer providing music and setting just the right mood. That is going to be a great evening.”
The festival continues Friday night and Saturday with the ArtFete, managed by the Central Louisiana Arts Council, which will feature booths with various arts and crafts as well as a variety of musical acts. “This year’s RiverFete will feature a variety of musical styles, so we’re sure there is something for everyone. We’ll have country, gospel, rap, R&B, jazz, zydeco – it’s so much music and so many artists we’ll have two stages,” Hall said.
Events will include a classic car show on Saturday. New this year will be the Youth EmpowerFete designed for youth ages 12 and up. It will feature speakers and musical artists with a message specifically for teens and will be held on Saturday, April 30, at the Rapides Parish Coliseum.
