Hosted by the Belle Vernon Borough Friends of Recreation Board, the festival will feature a Miss/Mrs./Mr. Monongahela River Pageant, a large community parade, vendor fair, concert, food stands, car show performances, children’s activities and an evening fireworks display. The canoe/kayak race will be held on July 20, starting at 1 p.m. All events will take place in Belle Vernon.
“All communities located along the Monongahela River are invited and encouraged to participate in the community festival,” said Wilson, chairwoman of the borough’s parks and recreation committee. “The weeklong festival will be the first of its kind and will emphasize community building, local collaboration and a positive emphasis on the Mon Valley Region.”
