Save the French Broad Float 2013
Grab your water wings Asheville & get ready to end the summer days with a bang with a community float down the French Broad River all in support of one of our most active environmental advocacy groups, Western Carolina Alliance!
Saturday, August 17th, local rockers Mad Tea will be hopping on a floating barge to serenade us all down the French Broad! Meet-up at noon under the bridge across from the Wedge Brewery for one rockin’ rafting trip, departing at 12:30pm! Asheville Adventure Rentals, just down the road from the Bywater is offering parking and a discounted raft rental & shuttle for just $10 a person. Take out at the Bywater around 1:30pm where we’ll be met with a full day of music from Molly Kummerle of Paper Tiger, Plankeye Peggy, Taylor Martin and reggae rockers Chalwa as well as one sweet raffle from your favorite outdoor retailers with giveaways from ENO, Southern Raft Supply, French Broad Rafting & Zipline, gift certificates & gear from Mellow Mushroom & more! Beer from Sweetwater, a special Brew from Highwire Brewery and Burial Beer Company using Riverbend Malt House malts will also be unveiled with proceeds going to WNCA!
Mark your calendar, throw on your suit and get ready for one heck of a ride! Float is free, $5 donation to Western Carolina Alliance at the Bywater.
