Riverfest 2017 TM 161
Tens of thousands of people flocked to Limerick over the May Bank Holiday weekend for Riverfest 2017, the city’s biggest ever summer festival.
Riverfest 2017 attracted more than 40,000 people to the city over the weekend, soaking up the electric atmosphere and watching the impressive events on display.
The highlights of the weekend included:
A spectacular fireworks display on Sunday night
Amazing acrobatic stunts and skills by some of the world’s best jet and wakeboarders
Free Zipline over the River Shannon
BBQ skills on show at Riverfest BBQ Competition
World Champion jetboarders Scotty Knemeyer and Bo Krook were two of the stand out stars of Riverfest 2017 as they thrilled the crowds with unbelievable displays in the water as part of the Maldron Hotel Riverfest on the Shannon.
They wowed the spectators as they performed dolphin dives, backflips and barrel rolls, all while seemingly floating in the air above the water.
