Roanoke River Fest and Recycled Regatta
June 2, 2018
Spend a day of family fun on the Roanoke River! Clean Valley Council’s 3rd Recycled Regatta will be held as part of a larger Roanoke River Festival which includes the Roanoke River Duck Race. Join us for a day full of fun, laughter, competition, ingenuity, and watershed education to be held along the Roanoke River. Recycled boat races will headline the day with teams testing their creative, building and boating skills as they race homemade boats made only of old recycled, reused and repurposed materials. Get a team together to represent your company, small business, church or youth group, school club, family or just friends and build a boat of your own. Younger children can make their own recycled soda bottle boat and race it down the river. The Great Roanoke River Duck Race will also be held. Purchase a duck and watch it race with thousands of others. All proceeds from the Duck Race support several local non-profit organizations. Tons of fun for spectators and boaters alike with river advocacy groups, watershed education activities for kids and adults of all ages, kayak and SUP demos, music, food, games, recycled art activities and more.
