PUEBLO — A Pueblo landmark is celebrating an anniversary.

The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk will turn 19 years old this weekend.

To celebrate there will be $2 boat rides Friday and Saturday.

"It is really just a grassroot thing with the citizens," said Riverwalk Executive Director Lynn Clark. "They decided they wanted a prettier place for their friends and family and if we can produce some tourism out of that. That is why we do it, it is amazing progress."

There are some improvements on the way for the Riverwalk, like a new boat house and expanding the channel to Santa Fe Ave.
