OAK HILL -- Wherever Linda Hyatt goes these days, whether it's the post office, the Burns Sci-Tech Charter School or her old stomping grounds at City Hall, this community is abuzz over the upcoming RiverFest at Mary DeWees Park.

Hyatt, former city commissioner and vice mayor, who came up short in the 2012 election for mayor against then-fellow Commissioner Douglas Gibson, remains as active as ever in Volusia County's southeastern-most and smallest city with 1,788 year-round residents.

She gets a kick out of the enthusiasm for the city's premier Spring event for the better part of Saturday, May 10, when scores of families or groups of friends, retirees, teens or jut about any other demographic join in on the fun of small town America.

"It really doesn't get any better than this," said Hyatt, who wrote about the event in her weekly community blog, "Linda's Lagoon," written exclusively for Headline Surfer®.

"There will be food vendors, arts and crafts, games, music and all-day entertainment scheduled so plan to be there," Hyatt wrote in her most recent blog published Monday. "All of our churches have special services planned, and some offer breakfast after the early morning worship service.  

At RiverFest, folks enjoy fine seafood, ribs, and Oak Hill Chowder, along with lots of fun and games for everyone. Crab racing and geocaching are added to the day of family fun.

The Payne Brothers Band have been added to provide the featured entertainment from noon to 3 p.m., in addition to several gospel and country music performers.

Proceeds from the RiverFest benefit the Oak Hill Community Trust.
