It Was A Great Weekend for the East Brady Riverfest
The verdict is in, and the consensus is that the 2022 East Brady Riverfest Street Fair was a great success. The weather was perfect and the crowds were superb.
The food was great, vendors were a plenty, and the music was perfect. All those who came had a wonderful time.
Here are a few photos submitted by Luanne at the All Stars Bar & Restaurant. All Stars was the host of this years and the center of the activities for the pig roast, games and entertainment.
