Organizers did not think so many people would attend 1st Brewer Riverwalk Festival

Organizers of the Brewer Riverwalk Festival are already planning next year’s festival after the inaugural celebration on Saturday drew more than 500 attendees.

In addition, local crafters who sold their wares during the event are calling for the festival to become an annual tradition, as Saturday’s event generated widespread business and interest in the city’s downtown.

The daylong celebration of Brewer’s Riverwalk, a mile-long riverfront path, featured food trucks, children’s activities and live performances. Tables holding about 20 local businesses and 20 crafters lined Center Street, and emergency vehicles were also stationed off Penobscot Street for children to explore. Fireworks were also scheduled for Saturday evening but were delayed a day due to impending rain.
