Slide Show: Phillips Avenue Community Festival

06/12/2011 9:45 AM |

The first ever Phillips Avenue Community Festival was held at the school in Riverside under cloudy and windy conditions Saturday afternoon. The motto of the event, ‘good vibes are contagious’, was evident through the dance, music, martial arts and other performances on the town’s showmobile.

There were also various stations for children to get physically activite with frisbee and football toss, rock wall climbing, tug of strength, hula hoops and a bean bag toss. All the money raised from the festival will be used to provide school supplies for Phillips Avenue Elementary students for the 2011-2012 school year.
