WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)— Families are wrapping up their Saturday at the 18th annual Wabash River Festival

The Wabash River Enhancement Corporation set up the event on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge.

Activities included outdoor fitness classes, a beer garden and an animal presentation from the Colombian Park Zoo.

Those in attendance enjoyed live music from bands like the Flying Toasters.

Children were also given the chance to learn safety regulations while riding a bike.

Volunteer Tynia Williams said this is a great way to celebrate activities in Greater Lafayette.

"You know, just showing people different things they may not have been accustomed to or know about," said Williams. "It's nice being able to come to some place local and not having to go way out and drive to find something interesting."

The event is followed by Mosey Down Main Street until 11 p.m. Saturday night.
