Anything That Floats
Join RiverLink on August 26th for the wildest, wackiest event of the summer, the Anything That Floats parade! Creating and building a raft, float or flotilla with fun-loving friends, family or co-workers is not only a great excuse to hang out and play on the river, it’s also a chance to have a blast and support RiverLink and the work we do.
The Anything That Floats parade judges will select a winning raft winners in four categories. Rafts must finish the full course to be eligible as a winner. Judging will be in the following 4 categories:
- Most creative – most clever and imaginative
- Green Machine – best use of recycled materials
- Funniest – the wittiest raft that brings the most laughs
- Judge’s Choice – the overall best in parade
