Riverfest is a public, two-day, free event that is held the first weekend in May each year.  The festival spans the entire length of the Riverwalk including several parks and features family-friendly activities and events showcasing Tampa's cultural institutions, local musicians and restaurants.  The festival includes Taste of Riverwalk on Friday night and TacoFest on Saturday.  There is also a full concert series of local bands on the main stage in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and a balloon glow at sunset both nights.  Other activities include a wiener dog derby, a lantern parade, yoga and a paddle invasion.
