    River Towns Ride & Festival Celebrating Historic New Castle & Delaware City

    RiverTowns Ride - Celebrating historic New Castle & Delaware City

    www.rivertownsfestival.com

    The second annual River Towns Ride & Festival is a one-day joint festival held between the two historic Delaware waterfront towns of New Castle and Delaware City. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 4, from noon-5 p.m.

    The two towns are 10 miles apart and connected by the bike-friendly corridor of Route 9. Therefore, the event will feature a bicycling component that will have riders cycling between the two destinations. Competitive cyclists will be encouraged to participate in the River Towns Time Trial for cash and prizes while recreational cyclists can pick their distance and ride for fun or to earn a distance medal.

    While cyclists traverse between the two towns, festivals will be held in each town’s main square: The Green in Historic New Castle and Battery Park in Historic Delaware City.

    Activities include live music, rides, attractions, games, tours, vendors, food and drink.

    A highlight of the event will be a craft beer festival held in each town from noon until 5pm. More than a dozen craft breweries will be participating.

    More Information

    2014 marks our 30th Anniversary for the New Castle CROP Hunger Walk! Last year we set a record for our area with over $14,000 – Help us break $15,000 this year!

    Plan to be a part of this exciting international outreach. CROP Walks are local, interfaith, outreach events. There are 2,000 CROP Walks throughout the U.S. every year. Walking together we can change the lives of so many people around the world.

    25% of the money raised from the New Castle CROP Walk goes to our two local beneficiaries; Emmanuel Dining Room in Wilmington and the Food Bank of Delaware. These organizations are struggling to find enough food to give to all those asking for help.

    There will be two routes, allowing us to walk through historic Old New Castle and scenic Battery Park. The longer route is 3 miles, and the shorter route is 1-1/2 miles. Choose the one you want to walk. Dogs are welcome! Bring the whole family.

    The walk will begin and end in New Castle United Methodist Church’s parking lot, 510 Delaware St. Registration begins at noon in the Fellowship Hall of the church. There will be refreshments after the walk. Each walker will receive a Certificate of Appreciation and a feeling that you’ve helped to make a difference to someone.
