July 13, 2019: Bicentennial Riverfront Park race (citizen slalom)
Course designed by long time slalom paddler Jim Tybinsky. Expect a course that is challenging but makeable in all boat types and most skill levels.
Friday evening of fun events along the park including a cardboard regatta with Rib Festival and live music during the day on Saturday.
Camping is available at the park for racers along with hotels, restaurants and grocery stores very close by.
