“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer.”
Thousands of revelers stepped back to the future at the rollicking Fifth Annual Rivertown Revival, a benefit for the David Yearsley River Heritage Center at Steamer Landing Park on the McNear Peninsula in the heart of historic West Petaluma, July 19th. This increasingly popular, steam-punkish party raises significant funds for staffing and innovative programs of the Friends of the Petaluma River.
Anything-goes, quasi-Victorian and other outlandish outfits, the best of local craft ale, more of the best of local craft ale, music and food-truck refreshments being the order of the day, this one-of-a-kind event pulls in Petalumans and rivertown fans of all ages.
My favorite thing at RR being people watching - the garb gets better each year.
