FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Three Rivers Festival draws thousands of people downtown, but organizers said they still need volunteers to help out.

"Everyone goes yay the festival is done, and everybody goes home, but there's still so much work to do," executive director Jack Hammer said.

The Three Rivers Festival starts July 12th and runs through the 20th. While they are almost set with volunteers for the beginning and during, the problem is when it's over.

"We need to get this back in the truck because Pride festival starts just about three or four days later," Hammer said.

This event is solely put on by Three Rivers so they want all the help they can get with the clean up.

Hammer said they've already reached out to churches, organizations, and friends to come pitch in, but need more people.

He said you can register to volunteer during the festival. They still need some people for that, but the major need is at the end.

If you go to threeriversfestival.org you can register under the volunteers tab.
