Kennebec River Day
June 29, 2019
The Kennebec River Day is one of the KV Chamber's signature events during the Whatever Family Festival. The event is held at Mill Park along the mighty Kennebec River with activities for ALL AGES!
With two stages of live music and entertainment, event goers can expect to be entertained throughout the day by a variety of performances including dance performances, a karate demonstration, a talent show, and a performance by Hall-Dale High School’s Taiko Drummers.
Touch-a-Truck brings your toy car collection to life. Get the chance to pretend you’re a firefighter by climbing up into the Augusta Fire Department’s fire truck and ambulance displays. Other specialty trucks will be on site including an O&P glass truck and a Zamboni from the Maine Ice Vault.
There will be dozens of free games and activities throughout the park. A 150-foot inflatable military style obstacle course with tires, giant barriers, a rope swing, and a vertical wall to climb will be available for friends to challenge each other and see who has the skills to win. Other activities include making slime, disc golf, face painting, meet and greet with retired race dogs, lawn games, and more!
If you work up an appetite taking part in all of the activities, there will be lots of food options to choose from! Food vendors will be serving up dishes ranging from the traditional festival food of burgers, fries, and fried dough to fried pickles to mac & cheese and so many more delicious options.
The Chamber is excited to bring everyone together for a day in Augusta with activities for all.
