American River Festival on April 22-23

Posted April 10, 2006 by Robyn Suddeth

The 2006 season has finally started! I know this because there are actually events coming up that I can tell all of you about, the first of which is the American River Festival April 22-23.Â

The Festival goes Friday night through Sunday in Coloma, and includes a whitewater film fest on Friday night, a downriver raft race on Saturday, and Kayak slalom races on Sunday. The best part of the festival, though, should just be seeing all those familiar boating faces coming back into town to celebrate the river and kick off this season.Â

It’s not a bad time to schedule some time on the South Fork of the American anyway. Snowpack is at 181% right now! So flows should be really high and fun for these first few months.Â
