Community River Day & River Performance Project
July 15, 2016 - July 16, 2016
The first day of this event will feature an immersive dance and music performance on the Schuylkill River. Community River Day will begin on the second day and is a fun family event, targeting the residents of Strawberry Mansion, an East Fairmount Park neighborhood adjacent to the Schuylkill River.
The event kicks off at Mander Recreation Center with a drum line processional to Kelly Drive. Upon arrival at the river, participants can try boating on the river, IndeGo bikes, yoga, fishing, participate in interactive activities that address fears about the river, and enjoy local food vendors.
The event concludes with a performance on the river by our outreach program and local Stand Up Paddle Board dancers. Residents learn about the river’s importance as a local watershed and reconnect to it through fun activities and events throughout this family fun event.
