After seeing record high, triple-digit temperatures during the week, Riverbank Chamber of Commerce officials decided to cancel last Friday’s Farmers Market, June 23.
And with the long July 4 holiday weekend coming up, there is no market scheduled for this Friday, June 30, according to market manager Garnette Martin. She said the local market won’t return until Friday, July 7. All the regular free activities are expected to be accompanying the farm fresh fruits and vegetables available for purchase at the Community Center Park when the market resumes next month.
Originally scheduled for last week, a wine tasting at the community center and music from the Rob Hill Band hopefully will be rescheduled for some time in July. There was no free movie scheduled for last Friday, because of the movie set to be held at Jacob Myers Park on Saturday.
On Friday, July 7, the current schedule calls for Brad Brown to return to the stage. The main attraction will be the Kids Safety Night, along with its Bicycle Rodeo. Riverbank Police Services officers routinely give away bicycle helmets and other equipment, along with some bicycles, while providing safety information at the same time.
Martin said the Classic Car Show will continue, with voting for crowd favorite also sought during the event. In addition to the nearby playground, other free features will include the Jungle Bounce House and a free showing of the animated film Sing.
The market will continue through the remaining Fridays in July, Martin said, concluding on July 28.
