The first ART FISH FUN Festival was held in 2014 in recognition of River Day. The event was initially created in an effort to combine environmental education with arts, crafts, and community. Each year, the festival has grown. Thanks to the generosity of the event’s sponsors, it can provide every attendee with exciting activities such as painting with fish, multiple bounce houses, and a free BBQ lunch.
