About RiverFest 2012

Lrca

A regional Rite of Spring in NEPA!! RiverFest is the signature event of the LRCA. In May of each year, paddlers take to the water and revelers fill the banks of the Lackawanna River. A day of exercise and fun, RiverFest draws the community outdoors after the long winter to celebrate the valley and the river that runs through it.

    A cash prize of $500, $250, and $100 will be awarded to the lucky numbers of the first, second, and third place ducks, respectively, that cross the finish line.

    Ducks are available for a $5 individual sponsorship, or $20 for a flock of eight.
