Advance tickets are now on sale for the Eighth Gathering of the Kingdom of Riverssance, being held Oct. 1 and Oct. 2 in Riverside Park.
Tickets may be purchased for $6 at all Sioux City and South Sioux City Hy-Vee stores until Sept. 15, according to Riverssance coordinator Phil Claeys. In addition, advance tickets for the festival's Saturday and Sunday Pirate's Smokers are also available.
Tickets may also be purchased at the day of Riverssance. Gate entry is $9 for adults and $4 for children 6 - 12. Children under six will get in for free for the festival which, in years past, have included more pirates, wenches and royalty than one could shake a jousting lance at.
