Waltham RiverfestThe Waltham Riverfest will be on June 14th & 15th by the Moody Dam in Waltham.

Rent out a kayak or canoe per hour or day and take a journey on the Charles River.  There will be boating, arts & crafts, music and so much more! 

"'Riverfest was originally started to take use of the river itself…to increase use of the river,'said Charnan Bray, downtown facilitator for the Downtown Waltham Partnership, one of the main sponsors of the event, along with the Waltham Cultural Council and the Waltham West Suburban Chamber of Commerce."

The events start late on Friday and include boating on the Charles and a midnight kayak and canoe tour. The events for Saturday start around 9am and end around 7pm. 

"The festival features a number of musical acts from folk to R&B. The festival will also feature about 15 arts and crafts vendors and a pet parade on Saturday at noon."
