Anything goes at river festival
THE upcoming river festival continues to expand with activities for the big weekend.
A river rafting event is now planned where almost anything goes. The only rules are rafts must be people powered in a life jacket.
The excessive use of flour bombs, paint bombs and water bombs may not lead to a disqualification. Drag out the tinnies, kayaks, rubber tubes, bath tubs, 44 gallon drums or even tie a heap of floaties together and get on the river.
All starts at Junction Park at about 1pm Saturday, September 30.
