River Day

Saturday, June 18 from 10AM to 1PM  - HUGE SUCCESS - WE LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR!

Canoe and Kayakers: Your day will begin by you transporting​ your vessels to the Thompson farm where you will gain entry to the river. You will unload and from there we ask that your designated driver and transport vehicle be sent to the boat ramp on HWY 52, toward Lyons Station. From There your designated driver will be shuttled back to the launch site via vans donated by Enterprise rental. We will allow an allotted amount of vessels on to the river, to avoid congestion and a safe successful trip down the mighty Rolling Fork!

Once entry by all is gained at the Thompson farm, the site will be shut down and all volunteers will proceed to various other parts of the events, No access will be allowed to Thompson Farm after that time. With the possibility of a larger turn out, please expect a staggered entry. We are hoping to launch a group per hour beginning at approximately 9 AM, shuttling will begin at 8:30AM. Please understand there may be a delay as you arrive. We express that patience is maintained throughout the event.

As you arrive you will pay entry fee at gate .  The entry fee will be :  $10 per boat
