The Trenton River Days Fair is a free event and will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to celebrate the ecological, recreational and economic benefits of the Delaware River..
Attendees will have a chance to explore the diversity that surrounds the Delaware River with fun, educational activities. The event will begin with planting a pollinator garden that will attract native pollinating insects including bees, butterflies, moths and beetles to promote a healthy ecosystem. Guests will even have a chance to see pollinators up close through a beehive observation provided by staff at Howell Farm.
Educators at the Tulpehaking Nature Center will be on site with arts and crafts, hands-on activities and environmental displays. For those looking for outdoor tips, REI will be available to discuss the best trails and locations for camping, hiking, biking and more. For a different perspective of the river, take a ride with naturalists on the pontoon boat, enjoy canoeing, make fish art, meet some fish up close, and learn how to keep our rivers healthy with staff from The Watershed Institute. Attendees can also try their hands at fly fishing with volunteers from Trout Unlimited.
Live music will be provided by Son 7 under the gazebo at the north entrance of the park. Food, drinks, vendors and more will be available on the lawn. Visitors will park at the Arm & Hammer Park lots adjacent to Route 29 before the tunnel.
South Riverwalk Park is located in South Trenton above the Route 29 tunnel; it is owned by the County of Mercer and maintained by the Mercer County Park Commission. The park offers pedestrian walkways, lawn areas, pavilions, a children’s playground and views of the Delaware River. The park is open to the public from sunrise to sunset.
