Music show economics spelled the end to Riverfest after this year's edition, but Springfest, a family event earlier in the spring that channeled the early days of Riverfest, will continue.

The Museum of Discovery announced today that it will sponsor the third installment of the free family event from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 7, at the River Market pavilions and the First Security Amphitheater.

The Museum, just down the street on Clinton Avenue, will add some of its hands-on activities and "Awesome Science" shows to the event. Other elements include the Super Retriever Series, a dog parade, interaction with police, fire and other emergency responders, play attractions such as a giant slide and bounce houses;, a construction zone and  performances by dance teams, cheerleaders and bands. Count on food trucks and vendors, too.  Austin Hall at the Museum of Discovery has more information — 501-406-7568 or ahall@museumofdiscovery.org
