Midland River Festival Starts with Fun Activities This Week

Starting Thursday, August 4, the Midland River Festival kicks off with Main Street Glow, a hot air balloon basket spectacle along Main Street.

From 7:00 to 8:30 P.M., the balloon baskets will fire up their burners, providing shoppers and diners a unique view of downtown. Residents can see the baskets up close and speak with the balloonists.

On Friday, River Days After Party turns Main Street into a giant dance floor at the McDonald Street intersetion. The event takes place from 9:00 to 11:00 P.M. Live music is provided by Stone Street Revival and several businesses will offer outdoor beverages in The Commons.

All ages are welcome. Both events are free and open to the public.
