RILEY CREEK FESTIVAL SET
Bluffton University will host the annual Riley Creek Festival beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 14, on the Neufeld Hall lawn.
The event is free—except for lunch—and open to the public. Lunch, to be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., is $6 for adults and $4 for children.
"Away at Sea!" is the theme of this year’s festival, a day of games and entertainment. A faculty/staff dunk tank and the annual rubber duck race down Riley Creek—with ducks costing $1 each—will raise money for First United Methodist Church of Ada, which was destroyed in a March 13 fire.
The festival will end after the 4 p.m. rubber duck race, but community members and their families are invited back to campus for a 9:30 p.m. showing of "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" on the Neufeld lawn.
Events will move to Bob’s Place, in Marbeck Center, and Founders Hall’s Burcky Gymnasium in case of rain.
