River Ruckus 2014 will take place on September 6th
We are looking forward to this year’s River Ruckus, which will take place on Saturday September 6th on Haverhill’s Riverwalk and Washington Street. Team Haverhill appreciates the ongoing support of Haverhill Bank as the sponsor of the Classic Car show for the fourth year.
Once again HC Media’s Frank Novak will do a “classic car commentary” that goes “live” on Channel 22. The WXRV The River 92.5 is again providing the live music onstage beginning at 2:30 pm along the River Walk. Look for an announcement soon with the band line-up!
Last year there was a huge demand for pontoon boat rides on the Merrimack River and this year Rockingham Boat is once again coming to River Ruckus. Also not to be missed is taking a kayak out on the river from Plum Island Kayak.
The Annual Rubber Duck Regatta presented by Haverhill Rotary takes place on the day of River Ruckus from the Comeau Bridge at approximately 3:00 pm depending on the tides. Watch as 10,000 plus rubber ducks are dropped from the Comeau Bridge into the Merrimack River in a swim to the finish! The adopter of the first duck to cross the finish line wins a $10,000 cash prize, generously donated by Rockingham Toyota of Salem, NH. To adopt a duck and have a chance at winning the prize visit www.facebook/rubberduckregatta.com.
Children’s activities, complimentary natural snacks and beverages from Whole Foods Market, the “touch tank” from Joppa Flats of Mass Audubon, all this and more for a fun-filled day of family entertainment in historic downtown Haverhill. Join us!
