A River Runs Through It, A river runs through it: Festival celebrates community Amy Binkley Assistant managing editor The Globe | 0 comments

Growing up in Eastern North Carolina taught Alva Williams one thing.

“You never get too old for the river,” she pondered as she sat along the banks of the New River.

Thousands of guests made their way to celebrate their local community at the annual Riverwalk Festival hosted by Bettering Our Local Downtown along Riverwalk Crossing Park in Jacksonville Sept. 21 and 22.

Williams, a member of the New River Foundation, readied herself along with her fellow foundation members for questions from curious onlookers as they discovered the secrets of the river running through their home.

“When I hear people saying there’s nothing to do here, I ask them when the last time they went to downtown Jacksonville was,” stated Betty Sanders-Seavey, NRF’s executive director. “This festival is important for awareness and education. Most people just don’t know they can use the river for recreation and resource.”
