Organized by volunteers of the Fishtown Neighbors Association, the RiverCity Festival attracts nearly 10,000 attendees to raise funds for neighborhood projects and revitalization.
Multiple bands will perform throughout the day, from noon through 6 p.m.
In the beer tent, which will have a prime view of the stage, there will be brews from Fishtown Brewpub, Saint Benjamin Brewing Co., Homebrew Outlet, The Bottle Shop, Yards Brewing Co., Evil Genius Beer Company and Philadelphia Brewing Co., as well as cider from Kurant. All pints will be $5.
As for activities, in addition to face painting for kids and yoga for all ages, there will be a moon bounce and inflatable obstacle course, a balloon art show and field games.
Admission to the festival is free. Street parking by the park is limited, so festival-goers are encouraged to take SEPTA's Market-Frankford line to the Girard Avenue stop, then walk, or take the number 43 bus, which stops at Penn Treaty.
There will also be a bike valet, for anyone who decides to cycle over.
