On the River Fest looking for volunteers


In just a few days people will gather on the banks of the St. Joe River for the 6th annual On The River event. The two-day festival includes a Teen Night, Family Day and the 21 and up Beach Bash.

The event's slogan is "transforming the landscape of our community". This is taken quite literally by bringing in sand to make a beach in Downtown South Bend and also by donating the proceeds to the Center for the Homeless.

Aaron Perri, the Executive Director of Downtown South Bend said, "This is a community event really, so it takes the community not only in terms of sponsors that put this thing together, the volunteer committee that puts the event on and then the volunteers the day of, that's really where we have our biggest need. "

The event needs about 200 volunteers to help with security and with Family day. If you're interested in volunteering at the On The River event, you can click here.
