The sixth annual California Riverfest gave California locals, and new and returning students two days of festivities, local vendors, and live music to make move in weekend an even better time.

Saturday kicked off with vendors lining the street selling items ranging from deserts, to jewelry, to professional photography, and much more. Throughout both days festivities included a bounce house and slide, a splash zone with a water gun fight and a surprise spray from the California fire trucks, train rides, an animal show, and face painting later in the evening all for the kids, plus a dunk tank for everyone’s enjoyment.

The live music began in the afternoon on Saturday with local cover bands Classics and Refuge, playing a variety of classic rock and country songs. Into the evening Cal U bands AKID and Name It Tomorrow took to the stage, followed by Brownsville locals Blended Reality closing out the night with their country and pop covers. Sunday’s music featured polka band Mon Valley Push in the early afternoon with California mayor, fire chief, and head of the Cal U music department Dr. Frank Stetar on trumpet.

Sunday’s music continued with Shannon & the Merger, and Knob Road, and ended with a set from Ruff Creek performing during a fireworks show set off over the Cal U campus.
