Riverfest, incorporating the annual Duck and Raft Races in Olney is held on the first Sunday in July and really brings out spectators in their droves - to watch hundreds of plastic ducks 'race' down the River Ouse watched by those who have purchased a lucky number!
Then it is the turn of children, men and women who assemble a raft and then paddle it along the river as it meanders around the town. At the finishing line by the towns 'steps' there are amusements, refreshments and live music.
Riverfest is organised by The Olney Group (TOG). For further information please visit their website www.theolneygroup.org
