Anything That Floats Registration

Placeholder

Product Description

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:

1.Most creative – most clever and imaginative
2.Green Machine – best use of recycled materials
3.Funniest – the wittiest raft that brings the most laughs
4.Judge’s Choice – the overall best in parade

Information/Rules:
 •Raft entry fee is $40.
 •No motorized rafts and no glass bottles on the river.
 •Youth under 18 are required (and adults are strongly encouraged) to wear life jackets.

•Put-in and Take-out are TBD. There are so many great spots on the river now for raft access, we are still deciding! Your raft captain will receive an email with that information by July 15th. 

• Put in times typically begin at 11:00am and stagger every 15 minutes. Your raft captain will receive an email with your specific put-in time by July 15th. Please adhere to your put-in time to help us avoid traffic back ups.

•Teams will check-in at the registration table to get a raft number and launch sequence, sign liability forms, and obtain a free parking permit for your vehicle.
 •Please have your full team available for an official photograph with your raft 10 minutes prior to launch time. Pictures will be posted on our website and our RiverFest facebook page.
 •Anything That Floats entries will be judged at the take-out.
 •A continuous shuttle will be provided to take rafters from finish to put in.
 •Winners in each category will be announced on the main stage at RiverFest.
 •All rafts & supplies must be removed from the river and parking areas by 7:00pm.
