"It wouldn't be summer without the Anything that Floats Parade," says press for this weekend's RiverFest, the 14th annual celebration of the French Broad River, put on by RiverLink. The aforementioned parade involves "watercraft of all kinds" created by various local groups. The day full of family-friendly fun also includes food trucks, local beer, activities for the kids (face painting, hula-hooping and puppies from Brother Wolf) and lots of live music. The Swayback Sisters headline along with Ty Nemecek and Taylor Martin's Engine. Skip the parking hassle and catch the shuttle service from the satellite parking area at The RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza (144 Riverside Drive). Held at French Broad River Park on Saturday, Aug. 10. 1-7 p.m. http://www.riverlink.org
