OLD TOWN, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- It was a cold drizzly morning in Old Town on Saturday but that did not stop people from going out to the river front for the 16th annual Riverfest.
People were able to stop at all kinds of booths and pick up some crafts or they could warm up with all kinds of food. The main attraction at Riverfest this year was the parade.
It started at Old Town high school and eventually made its way through downtown. Plenty of groups participated in the parade including the UMaine and Old Town Marching bands. There was some celebrity appeal too, the music group, Karmin, was the grand marshal. Member Nick Noonan is originally from Old Town.
"We're lucky that one of the members is from Old Town and his family is here. So I think we just made a couple of phone calls and they were happen to be free this weekend so I think we lucked out sort of speak," Riverfest Committee Member Caryl Willette said.
Willette said Sunday is the final day of Riverfest. There will be a dog show at the Herbert Sargent Community Center and the show starts at 1.
