Festival a wonderful way to celebrate Kenai River

Before we get too far from it, let’s take a moment to recognize what an amazing gift the 2014 Kenai River Festival was to our community. I would like to extend a very big thank you to the Kenai Watershed Forum staff and volunteers; educators; stage performers; art and food vendors; and supportive community members for creating such a beautiful and family-friendly event. The care that was taken by festival planners and vendors to make the event as ‘green’ as possible – through the use of compostable and recyclable servingware, especially – made the weekend even more delicious. Mindful, lively, family-focused and community-powered events like the River Festival make me glad to live here. What a beautiful way to celebrate our river!

Much gratitude to those who work tirelessly to give this gift to the community.
