“The Farmville Jaycees are so ecstatic to be bringing Live @ Riverside back to the community,” Ti’Erra Elam, Farmville Jaycees president, said. “We have truly missed being able to provide some summer fun to Farmville. This event is not only for entertainment, but we also get to promote our local businesses. Please come out and enjoy some great music, food and a few new elements we have added to the event. You don’t want to miss it.”
