The 5th annual RiverFest 2013—a free public event in Bonita Springs—recently took place at Riverside Park, highlighting the natural beauty of the Imperial River. The event included a 2-mile race down the Imperial River, the Great Florida Quacker rubber duck race, a butterfly release ceremony, live entertainment and a fish fry.

Imperial River: Natural Beauty in Bonita Springs

Situated on Estero Bay and home to the Imperial River, Bonita Springs offers a multitude of boating communities. Bonita Springs doesn’t have the large high-profile boating communities like Port Royal in Naples, Gulf Harbour in Fort Myers or Cape Harbour in Cape Coral, but rather smaller more intimate communities with primarily private boat docks and lifts behind single-family homes.
