Idea Sponsoring River Fest

Idea Marketing Group is helping sponsor River Fest this year! Join us at the apple shots station where we’ll be flinging apples into canoes with a giant slingshot. For every apple made into the canoe gets entered into a drawing for a cash prize!

Idea will also be taking part in the cardboard boat race! We’ve been working long and hard on constructing our boat. Keep an eye out for our giant “Idea” logo as we race to the finish!

For more information regarding River Fest and to view the full schedule of events, please visit Yorkville’s website or visit the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce’s website.

We hope to see you there!
