The city of Renton celebrated the 33rd annual Renton River Days this past weekend in over 90-degree weather.

River Days festivities began July 27, with the parade being held Saturday, July 28.

Drill teams, dancers, marching bands, horses, cars and more traveled along the parade route as attendees watched on. There were 80 parade entries this year.

“This year’s Renton River Days had something for everyone,” said Mayor Denis Law. “The festival celebrated its 33rd year and attracted thousands of people from all over the region of all ages to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of our community with music, dance, interactive art and great performances.”

This year’s River Days featured 30 activity stations, 55 Art Market booths, 70 community booths and 20 performance groups. There was 140 vehicles in the German Car Show, and 450 free boat rides at the Antique and Classic Boat Show.

The annual senior day picnic was sold out, with more than 500 attendees.
