It’s become an annual tradition in the Triboro since beginning in 2007. Except this year, the Vikings Helpings Vikings (VHV) festival will be held a bit earlier than normal.

“We wanted to move the date up a bit,” said the organization’s founder Paul Brennan. “It was better to have it earlier before summer came when more of the families and kids were still around and not away on vacation.”

The event serves as the cornerstone fundraiser for VHV, a group dedicated to providing financial resources to the community’s youth.

The festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, at the high school football stadium on Main Street and will begin with a 5K run and walk.

Registration is at 8 a.m. at the field house on Main Street and the cost is $15, which includes a T-shirt.

“This organization is important because it raises funds that directly helps and benefits students who are members of the graduating class each year from the Riverside School District,” said Jared Lewski, a volunteer helping with the event. “And, the district isn’t just including kids from Taylor, we also have kids from Moosic as well, so I hope everyone in the Triboro area comes out on Saturday.”

Following the 5K, the festivities continue with food, live entertainment, baked sale, basket raffles, awards and children’s games.
