The River Towns Fall Festival & Ride, celebrating the heritage of Delaware City and New Castle, is set for noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 6 at Battery Park, 1 Delaware St., New Castle, and The Green, New Castle.

This year, River Towns is introducing an expanded bike ride component, beginning at 11 a.m., that will allow cyclists to travel between Delaware City, New Castle and Wilmington Riverfront at the DuPont Nature Center.

The DuPont Nature Center along the Wilmington waterfront creates a new and expanded trail option for recreational riders. Although there will be the recreational bicycle ride, the timed "race" component of the festival is removed.

The festival will also feature live music, rides, attractions, games, tours, vendors, food and drink.
