The parade will begin at the intersection of F Street and 6th Street, and will travel to 2nd Street (the

half-block of F Street between 3rd and 2nd, currently closed as part of the pedestrian zone, will be open

into Riverside Park. All vehicles will be asked to turn right (east) on 2nd Street after unloading

participants for the foot parade.

and floats are welcome, including vehicle or trailer floats, walking groups, bicycles, Hooligan crafts, and

everything in between. The theme of the 2022 parade is “Back to the Future,” and FIBArk is excited to

see what the community comes up with to celebrate the history of this event and its vision of the future

of FIBArk, Salida, and our whitewater community.

The FIBArk Board of Directors would especially like to thank the City of Salida, the businesses on F

Street, and the local neighbors who graciously sacrifice their parking on Saturday morning in order to

make this event happen. For any questions, please contact FIBArk at
