There is no shortage of fun in Roanoke this weekend, and much of the activity will be centered on Reserve Avenue.
The Go Outside Festival returns for the third year, and promises something for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
Visitors will find a wide range of outdoor activities including kayaking, hiking and biking, and the chance to channel their inner stuntman with a jump onto a giant air bag.
Joe Hanning is the Marketing and Outreach Coordinator for Roanoke Parks and Recreation. "We just want to take advantage of what we have here in Roanoke, and let people know that we can get outside and have a great time," Hanning said in an interview. "With all the amenities that we have with Mill Mountain here, with the rivers here, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, we are just an ideal place to come for outdoor recreation."
The Go Fest started Friday evening, and it continues through Sunday afternoon.
The event also includes music, with the Hackensaw Boys performing Saturday at 8PM.
Admission is free.
