HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - The inaugural Henderson Summerfest took over Henderson’s riverfront on Saturday.

It was a free event to help raise awareness about local charities.

Henderson Summerfest featured a beer garden, vendors and musical guests.

One of the organizers, Greg Mullins, says he and a few friends organize the wiffleball tournament each year for the Boys and Girls Club.

He says after the tournament there is so much momentum, so they wanted to bring this type of event to the riverfront.

“In Henderson, we have several festivals in our park and stuff downtown,” Mullins said. “It just seemed like a natural fit to add one and get the summer going.”

All proceeds are going to three local charities.

The event was free, but those who went were encouraged to donate.
