Salida FINALLY has an end-of-summer river party! The last Saturday before the flows drop*, come hang out and celebrate the Arkansas River with us at the FIBArk Boathouse, right next to the boat ramp in downtown Salida. 

We will have a number of events throughout the day, some great local vendors, and barley-based refreshments from our friends at Salida Brewing Company. 

Party starts at 10:00am!

All proceeds from this event will go to the FIBArk Youth Paddling Program.

*Well, actually...flows probably aren't dropping on the 15th this year, but we had to plan way ahead for this stuff.  We're going to have great water through Labor Day, so get out there and enjoy the river!
