This First Annual Event is brought to you by Wabash County Solid Waste Management, this new event lets you
choose your preferred method to enjoy the Wabash River & the River Trail. This is not a competition but rather an opportunity
to spend some time on the Trail or the River. Throughout the day, festival attenders can board the bus at the Paradise Spring Historical Park Entrance to be taken to a drop off point where they can stroll, run, bike or stake a portion of the trail, leading them back to the festival.
More details coming about the "Float" portion of the event.
