Get your creative caps on, put together a team, and build your yacht for the 2017 Anything That Floats Parade!

Registration is now open for RiverLink’s Anything That Floats Parade which will be held on Saturday, August 26, 2017 on the French Broad River in Asheville.

Registration will go live in Spring of 2017. Stay tuned!

Join RiverLink for the wildest, wackiest event of the summer. Creating and building a raft, float or flotilla with fun-loving friends, family or co-workers is not only a grand excuse to hang out and play on the river, it’s also a unique chance to have a blast while showcasing mind-blowing creativity in a friendly competition.

Judges will select a winner in each of the four categories:

1. Most Creative – clever and imaginative
2. Green Machine – best use of recycled and green materials
3. Funniest – generates the most laughter
4. Judge’s Choice – overall best in parade.

The Anything That Floats Parade is a featured event of RiverFest 2017, held at the Salvage Station at 468 Riverside Dr, Asheville, NC 28801 (map).  The festival has an exciting line-up of live music, craft beers, foodtrucks, and more!

RiverLink hosts the Anything That Floats Parade and RiverFest as fundraisers to support their efforts in the environmental and economic revitalization of the French Broad River as a place to live, work and play.
