American River Trailfest June 9th 2008Posted May 26, 2008 by Malina
The American River Trailfest is an annual event that brings the Coloma-Lotus valley community together for a fun day of BBQ, live music, education, face painting and fundraising for a very cool cause–the creation of a long stretch of protected space in the American River canyon. This land will be set aside for both nature and recreation–hiking, biking, general wandering around….
This event is open to the public–anyone who enjoys whitewater rafting will learn alot about efforts to protect river canyons and have a great time. All-Outdoors always donates trips to the silent auction and buys lots of tickets so I’m sure we’ll be out in force at this year’s festival. If you have kids they will be totally welcome–face painting, live animal education, games and lots of grass to run around mean there are lots of opportunities for families to enjoy.
Adults can make their way down the winetasting area, bid in the silent auction, and eat BBQ. Dancing is for everyone!
