PHOTOS — RiverFest fun begins today in Port Neches

Port Neches’ annual RiverFest is scheduled for April 28 to May 2, and after taking a one-year hiatus, the Mid County community is a buzz with a host of old and new festival attractions, events and vendors.

The festival will officially begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday (April 28) with the opening of the carnival on Faith and Family Night.

In addition to the carnival and traditional vendors, the event will feature multiple opportunities for family gatherings including a horseshoe tournament, washer tournament, car show and treasure hunt.

Debbie Plaia, president of the Port Neches Chamber of Commerce, is excited to have almost all events including the classic car show back for 2021.
