The Arkansas River's illuminated bridges presented a fine photo opportunity for the Times' Brian Chilson last night as he covered Riverfest. You can see lots more of his photos of the crowd, performers and other sights at his Facebook page. Great stuff.

The Riverfest finale, including fireworks, is tonight. Looking like a pretty good year for the Memorial Day weekend staple. Big crowds and, so far, minimum reports of problems. Here's the full entertainment schedule.
