“I think Riverfest is a wonderful opportunity for all of Clarksville to be able to come out and enjoy the fun that we have here. We have some great acts and wonderful music. Lots of fun, lots of booths and it’s all free, said Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan. “So it’s something that we provide to the citizens of Clarksville to allow them to get out enjoy the family and have some fun.”

Waterdogs Scuba and Safety has brought the Go Dive Now pool back to Riverfest this year. The diving pool allows people to try scuba diving for free.

The diving pool is approximately 20 foot by 30 foot, 4 foot deep, and holds 15,000 gallons of 86 degree water. There is a dressing room, towels and hairdryers if needed. You will be using the newest diving equipment that includes an air compressor, wet suits and fins.

“We have brought the Go Dive Now pool back to Riverfest to give people a free opportunity to try scuba diving for themselves. We have been in business here in Downtown Clarksville on Riverside for about 3 1/2 years. Doing this, and introducing scuba diving to this community has been real important to us,” stated Rich Holiday co-owner of Waterdogs Scuba and Safety.

Some of the performers Friday were Kendre Streter and Madeleine on the Miller Lite Stage. Christian performers on the First Baptist Church stage were Emma Feldman, Sons of Levi, and Lydia Walker. The Wicked Good Sandwiches Stage hosted alternative rock bands like Joyous Riot, The Nick Jones Project and Brother Ryan & Co.
