On the road

RiverFest of the Lewis Clark Valley

WHAT: The inaugural event will include vendor booths, musicians, beer and wine garden, food, kids’ activities and local entertainment. The Rivers & Ridges bicycling event will run in conjunction with RiverFest with three rides.

WHEN: Noon-7 p.m. Sept. 26-27.

WHERE: Granite Lake Park, 306 Granite Lake Drive, Clarkston.

ACTIVITIES: There will be standup paddleboard and personal watercraft demonstrations, a display of the Ryan Rogers racing boat, the Rec Mobile from the Lewiston (Idaho) Parks and Recreation Department, a boat show and helicopter rides.

ABOUT THE PARK: Operated by the Port of Clarkston, the 6-acre park sits on the bank of the Snake River. It has been landscaped with plants that were native to the area more than 200 years ago when the Lewis and Clark Expedition went through the region.

COST: Free.

RIVERS & RIDGES: Families can take part in the 15-mile ride along the Snake River or the more demanding 50-mile loop tour through Appaloosa country to Spalding Park. Those riders who really want a test can do the 100-mile ride that will climb more than 2,000 feet to the rolling Palouse. There will be a spaghetti feed the night before the ride.
