RiverLink (an organization leading economic and environmental sustainability of the French Broad River) celebrated the 20th anniversary of its Anything That Floats Parade and RiverFest on Saturday. The river was filled with colorful and creative float inventions. Spectators lined the river’s edge to take in the sights.
As the parade ended at RiverFest — held at the Sculpture Park on Riverside Drive — the festivities kicked off with local musicians Ashley Heath, Grits & Soul, Sirius.B and Floating Action.
