Willimantic WhitewaterConnecticut’s Willimantic Whitewater Partnership will hold its annual Riverfest next Saturday, May 17 in Willimantic.

Events include a paddle from the Eagleville Dam to Willimantic, bike rides to the RiverFest site on Bridge Street, a fishing derby, and a whitewater kayak demonstration.  There will also be live music, food, and kid games.

The mission of the Willimantic Whitewater Partnership is to recapture the waterfront of the Willimantic River in the towns of Windham and Willimantic by increasing safe access to the river, restoring its environment, and developing an urban waterfront and whitewater park.
