CLEARFIELD – Mother Nature brought a bit of a cold snap, dropping temperatures into the 50s and 60s, but the Clearfield community still turned out for Riverfront Festival for closing night Saturday.
Several acts played during the day, including Heaven Bound, Gene Allen and Matt Day.

Serious Jones began their show, playing both classic and modern rock selections, but it was the next generation of musicians who stole the show.
Dennis Wood, frontman for Serious Jones, shared the stage with his own son Zach and some other special guests. Cole Navasky, son of Chuck Navasky (One Less Tear), and Navasky himself joined the band for two songs, prompting the crowd to move closer to the gazebo stage.

Cole’s mom, Jaye Navasky, smiled while watching her son jam on stage with his dad, and Zach’s mom, Sherry Wood, had a video camera in hand to capture the memories for posterity.
When interviewed earlier in the week, both dads said they were very proud to be able to share the stage with their boys. This marks the third year that Wood has played at Riverfront Festival with his son.

The band broke for fireworks by R & R Fireworks Inc. of Houtzdale, then played into the night to close out Clearfield’s official kickoff to summer.
