Mendon Riverfest successful

Organizers of the 25th Mendon Riverfest, which concluded its three-day run Saturday, said the milestone anniversary was a success.

Riverfest Committee chairman Roger Cupp said a strong crowd all day Saturday made up for smaller-than-usual attendance Thursday and Friday.

Highlights Saturday included a canoe swamp, which drew eight teams and featured a $100 cash prize won by a three-member team consisting of Mendon residents Jenna and Meghan Griffith, and Three Rivers native Amanda Brady.

A 25-minute fireworks show that drew more than 2,000 spectators concluded the festival.
