Mayor Craig A. Moe would like to remind the residents and visitors to Laurel that the Laurel Board of Trade will host the annual Riverfest this Sunday, October 7 from 11am to 5:00pm at Riverfront Park in Laurel.
The Laurel Board of Trade stated in its press release, that they are “drawing on the past and coloring our future as the theme for this family day event.” There will be Renaissance artisans, a hay ride, and six stages of entertainment - overflowing with everything from live music to theater and poetry. In addition to the stages, the Laurel Museum will have children’s games and contests, just to name a few.
The Laurel Board of Trade, Inc. is a local non-profit membership organization founded in the early 1960’s by a group of Main Street small business merchants. At that time the group was known as “The Main Street Merchants Association” representing the small business owner in the Laurel, Main Street area. As the years went by, small businesses in Laurel, but not necessarily on Main Street expressed an interest in being involved and joining the organization. With that in mind, the Directors decided to branch out and include all of Laurel’s small businesses and the Main Street Merchants Association became known as The Laurel Board of Trade, Inc. Today, The Laurel Board of Trade encompasses all small businesses in the Greater Laurel Area.
Mayor Moe asks that if you would like more information on this family event, please contact Roxana Bangura at the Laurel Board of Trade at 301-483-0838.
