Welcome to the
EXCITING UPCOMING EVENT
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
This Mother's Day - Bring the entire family for a fun-filled afternoon.
The Protect -- Preserve -- Play Street Fair and River Road Holiday will take place on River Road and the last block of North Water Street by the Lewisburg Community Garden. Come on out between 1 and 5pm that afternoon to this community- and conservation-minded event for live music, food, children’s activities, giveaways, a plant sale, car-free walking and biking along the river, active living opportunities, garden tours, and a raffle.
The CommUnity Zone and Walk It! Bike It! Lewisburg are collaborating to make this year’s event bigger and better.
This event is being held to promote local organizations dedicated to preserving and protecting the health of the environment and our community, and to provide opportunities to play, get a little exercise, and learn about our region’s bountiful yet fragile natural resources. And you can do all of this while spending time with Mom. What better way to celebrate Mom than to be out in nature and appreciating the beauty of where we live?
In this fast-paced, digital world, we often forget the importance of stepping away from our technology for a couple of hours and spending time with family and friends. The central goal of this event is to give people that very chance to reconnect with loved ones while walking or biking along the Susquehanna. Come see the river from a different vantage point, rather than speeding by inside a fast-moving vehicle. Enjoy a riverfront promenade without having to travel to Northumberland or Williamsport.
Two thirds of a mile of River Road along the Susquehanna River will be closed to cars and open to pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair riders, and non-motorized vehicles of all kinds from 1 to 5pm. A portion of Water Street from St John St to St Anthony St and the stretch of River Road from the north end of Water Street to Winter Farm Lane (by the main entrance to RiverWoods) will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic, allowing individuals, families, and groups to enjoy this scenic stretch of the Susquehanna River on foot or on (non-motorized) wheels. This location affords easy connections to additional walking and biking opportunities at Wolfe Field and the AYSO Soccer Complex for a total loop option of almost 2 miles. It also reaches the street grid of downtown Lewisburg where walking another block brings you to Market Street. On this special occasion, it will be easy to walk back and forth safely between downtown Lewisburg and RiverWoods.
Parking will be available for those approaching from the north in the grass lot off Winter Farm Lane opposite the RiverWoods main entrance. For those arriving from the south, there is on street parking in the Borough as well as space at Wolfe Field. Plus of course people can walk and bike there too.
