The Alive on 25 summer street festival returns to downtown Riverhead Thursday evening with live music on eight stages, food, vendors and family fun.

The weather forecast looks OK so far, BID executive director Diane Tucci said Wednesday afternoon.

“We’ll stay on top of the forecast and if the chance of rain is more than 40 percent around mid-day Thursday, we’ll make the call to postpone,” Tucci said.
