Editorial: Here's to a cooler version of Rivertown Days

On the back of last year's Rivertown Days T-shirts, the words "Got Sweat?" were printed.

Seemingly every year, the annual community celebration in Hastings is on the hottest weekend of the summer.

That won't be the case this year. As of press time, the forecasted high temperature for Friday will be 67 degrees. The high on Saturday is 74, and Sunday is 81.

Sounds like the perfect weekend to us!

Again this year, for just $2 you can get all kinds of fun over three days along the river.

Rivertown Days takes months of planning, and it isn't a small feat to pull off such a big event. We applaud the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce and all the volunteers for all their hard work on the celebration.

This year the calendar of events is especially full. There's big music acts, jumping dogs, fast boats, crafts, shopping, great food, a carnival and a number of other fun activities.

We hope to see you there!
