Bay City: Rally on the River
Check-in will begin at 8:00 a.m. and local dignitaries will facilitate the official 9:00 a.m. start of this 7th annual floating fiesta.
Enticing advantages for prospective participants to thoughtfully consider include:
Pre-registration is required. But, there is no fee involved.
With an up-and-back route, paddlers can choose precisely how far, or long, they wish to float about (i.e., meaning; they can turn around wherever they desire along the 4.4 miles one-way, 8.8 round-trip, river route).
Rental kayaks are available.
On-the-water safety patrol is being provided by LCRA’s River Rangers. These marine officers are prepared to assist paddlers in distress with bottled water, shuttles or tows, etc.
The CVB will host a hospitality booth where enthusiastic river runners can pick up snacks, bottled water and other complimentary treats to accommodate their river run.
A special prize will be awarded to the boat (i.e., participant in a single, or participants in a tandem) bringing in the most trash collected on the water and river banks.
Food vendors will be on hand at the park to satisfy the paddler’s lunchtime appetite and/or thirst, as developed while passionately plying the river all morning long.
Location: FM 2668 behind the Rio Colorado Golf Course
