The River Valley Alliance’s Riverfest 2018, sponsored by Epcor, saw double the rafts and participants this year. In the second year of the festival, the event sold out again. Delighted to be a part of the festival again this year, the Aquatic Biosphere set up an engaging and interactive booth which had people in and out of it all day long. From the new Fish Wish tree to everyone’s favourite River Critters display, kid’s crafts and more, our amazing volunteers took charge of the booth and had people talking.

Saturday’s event in Sir Wilfred Laurier Park in Edmonton was busy, albeit dulled by the heavy smoke from the BC wildfires. Sunday’s events in Devon and Fort Saskatchewan ended up being cancelled due to steady rain with intermittent downpours.

Thus is the nature of outdoor events. The Aquatic Biosphere is looking forward to 2019’s event.
