Bring your canoe, kayak, water wings or other favorite non-motorized flotation device and race your way through Van Buren at this pre-festival event! This float is not so much a competition as a way kick off the Festival! All proceeds benefit the MU Extension in Carter County and their local education programs.
The float will go from Watercress Spring boat ramp to Riverfront Park (approximately 1 mile).
Participants are responsible for their own flotation devices (e.g., canoe, kayak, tube) and for shuttling. Parking available at Riverfront Park.
The fee is $10 per person. Register early to guarantee a t-shirt! Please fill out the form below for each participant.
