Summer Fun—Day 21: Father’s Day and South x West Rhode Fest

There’s a new event on the river, coming to you for Father’s Day!

Mayo BeachThe South River Federation and West & Rhode Riverkeeper have announced the inaugural SPLASH South x West Rhode Fest at Mayo Beach! From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., families can participate in free activities including kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, water-based educational programs for children, a beer garden for adults (donated by Buck Distributing Company), and live music by Guava Jelly and Swampcandy. During the festival, two kayaks will also be raffled for a cost of $20 per ticket.

The festival aims to teach people the importance of protecting our rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. “This is a way for us to help connect families with our rivers,” says West & Rhode Riverkeeper Jeff Holland. “After all, you can’t expect anyone to want to help protect the rivers and the Chesapeake Bay if they can’t get into the water.”
