LOWELL, Mich. (WOOD) — After taking a pause last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the annual Riverwalk Festival kicked off Thursday evening. 

The festival will be slightly different this year with no parade, but Liz Baker from the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce says she’s thankful for the organizers and community in making this weekend’s festivities happen. 

Throughout the weekend, kids and families can enjoy fun events in the streets of downtown Lowell. The fun will include live concerts, Flea on the Flat River, Run the Riverwalk 5K, Riverwalk Cruise-in Classic Cars, a pinewood derby race and more.

The festival will wrap up with a firework show on Saturday.
