Meet down the Riverwalk Path between Margarita's and Charles River Canoe & Kayak
195 Moody Street
Waltham, MA 02453
United States of America


Celebrate and learn about the mighty Charles with a simple stroll along the river during this annual festival. https://www.walthamriverfest.com/


Traveling on the paved pathway in front of Cronin's Landing, we’ll head upstream from Moody Street and hear how what was once an unsightly industrial area became the beautiful Upper Charles River Reservation. We'll be on Crescent Street for a stretch, then back on the Riverwalk after Prospect Street where we’ll discuss famous residents of the Mt Feake cemetery, the popular canoeing and entertainment venues along the river in bygone times, and contributions the Waltham Watch Factory made to the American Industrial Revolution and the Waltham community. At Woerd Woods, we'll see where WLT volunteer stewards have planted hundreds native trees, shrubs, ferns, and flowers.  

From 10 am - 4 pm, folks can visit community outreach tables from the WLT and others on a closed-to-cars Moody Street between Pine Street and the train tracks. Local bands will play on two stages [https://www.walthamriverfest.com/music] into the evening (including Mike Williams and Friends at 5 pm and the Kemp Harris Group at 7 pm). There will be a pet parade at noon, food vendors, and kids’ activities. Join the fun!
