    So, as with last year, no guests?

      This year we have the bands: Central Standard Time, Two-Bit Maniac, Strays and Cheese Pizza as our guests!

    My grandson loves every time Star trek. Would this be worth our time and 100 mile drive? Or is this just a theme for your towns yearly celebration?

      Hello, this is a blend of Star Trek and community events. It will definitely be worth the drive. Plus, if you want to stay overnight in Riverside, mention Trekfest when booking at room at the Riverside Casino and hotel for a discounted rate of $130 plus tax, a night.

    Looks like a great weekend we will be there and looking forward to seeing the demo derby and the band’s. 33 Years is a great
    To be going again.
