Hooligan race

Calling this a whitewater paddling event may be generous, but saying it is one of the most fun events of FIBArk would be right on.


• No Hazardous Materials, batteries, generators, or fuel of any type

• No furniture, mattresses, or other items that can become a river hazard if lost

• No pulling down the money-line. Doing so will disqualify your team from receiving any cash

•No white styrofoam

• You must remove and properly dispose of your craft

(and all it’s pieces)


*Please note that during high water years all barrels used to created crafts must be sealed. No open barrels allowed and crafts must not be taller than 6 feet.  

The Hooligan Race is open to anything that floats that’s not a boat. Hooligans dress up in costume and the winner is chosen by crowd support. This spectacle of “controlled chaos” is a local tradition that always produces a huge turnout on Saturday evening.

Please note that The Salida Fire Department will make the final call if we hold this race. If the water is too high, it will be canceled. This is their decision and FIBArk will support their decision.

If this happens, all registrants will be refunded.
