First Rivers and Rails Festival To Be Held

August 29th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

The first Rivers and Rails Festival will be held Sept. 7, 8 and 9.  Movies, vendors, games and contests as well as train rides will be on tap. The event is free to the public and the Allegany and Fort Hill high schools marching bands will perform. Other live music performances will be by The Sheatles, a female Beatles tribute band, and Old '97, a Johnny Cash tribute band. Any revenues generated will go toward planning for the proposed River Park at Canal Place project. That planned new tourism attraction is in the planning stage to create a recreational area at the North Branch of the Potomac River behind Canal Place.  The park will include a whitewater attraction for kayak and canoe travel, along with trail connections, a spectator area and scenic overlook. Officials say the project could take years to complete. Canal Place executive director Dee Ritchie says that excitement and momentum is growing for the River Park concept…
