RiverLink's Annual RiverFest & Anything That Floats Parade
Update: 8/9/13 RiverFest is on.  The Anything That Floats Parade is off.

Sorry everyone, but the waters of the mighty French Broad are too high to guarantee your safety and there will be no RiverLink sponsored water activity on Saturday, August 10 for RiverFest  no "yachts" or tubes in the water! We consulted with area outfitters, many of whom are not putting watercraft on the river at this time, and feel we have made a difficult  but correct  decision.

Refunds  We will refund entry fees for those who would like because they couldn't float their boat or yacht this year in the Anything That Floats Parade.

Cancelling the Anything That Floats Parade was the last thing we wanted to do, and we apologize for any inconvenience, but we have no control over the weather.

Anything That Floats Parade is a fun and wacky event held in conjunction with RiverFest 2013 on Saturday, August 10, 2013 on the French Broad River from 1PM  7PM.  Judges will select a winner in each category based on creativity, ingenuity, best depiction of the category, and spirit of the team.  

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

2. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and wear life jackets; please supply your own.
3. Anything That Floats entries will be judged at Hominy Creek put-in. Teams must check-in at the registration table to get a raft number and launch sequence, sign a liability form, and obtain a free parking permit for your vehicle.
4. A continuous shuttle will be provided to take rafters from the take out spot at the Sculpture and Performance Plaza back to Hominy Creek Park.
5. Approximate float time is three hours.
