For 68 years, spring has been welcomed by Beaumont’s Good Neighbor event — the Neches River Festival.

The NRF has remained one of the most illustrious events in Beaumont since its inception and continues to be a mainstay, celebrating youth, tradition and the Neches River, a resource for Southeast Texas.
