This year on Saturday July 4th 2009 around 10am the annual River Raft Regatta in downtown Gatlinburg Tennessee will begin. River Raft Regatta will start at noon but get there earlier to register and take a seat. It’s a great race to watch or participate in so be sure you and your loved ones are near the Little Pigeon River. This is an unmanned raft race open to anyone. Registration begins at 10:00 AM and the race will begin at 12:00PM. The schedule is strict so please make sure you are on time. You can enter any raft except balls and plastic eggs. Be sure you’re there early and get ready to have some fun.
The River Raft Regatta is sponsored by the Gatlinburg Recreation Department. It’s been a favorite summer event for the past few years. The race will start at the River Terrace Bridge on River Road and will end at the Ripley’s Aquarium bridge.
What an exciting way to spend part of your 4th of July weekend. This event will be fun for the entire family. For more information, visit www.gatlinburg.com.
