From the makers of popular Petaluma festival Rivertown Revival and SOMO Concerts, the inaugural New Year’s Eve Rivertown Ball brought yet another spectacular party to Sonoma County people. The event stayed true to the Rivertown Revival tradition, combining elements of steampunk, vaudevillian acts, dazzling costumes with a top-notch music lineup that included Oddjob Ensemble, El Radio Fantastique and Monophonics.
