All the scoop on Raft the Rio 2019

Posted on 25 April 2019: Your one-stop shop for our great Raft the Rio event.

It all happens on Saturday, June 15, 2019.  We’re on again! Float your boat!  Or watch others try to float any imaginable device.  It’s a fun event for the community.  Float or paddle – a raft you can make or a kayak – from La Llorona Park, the starting point, to the Calle del Norte bridge in Mesilla, for fun and/or to vie for prizes, including first to finish, best use of recycled materials, least likely to finish, and most spirited crew.  There’s a theme, “Pirates of the Rio Grande” and there will be a prize for best fitting into the theme. Participants have run kayaks and canoes but most built their own rafts, many with humorous themes (think Vikings, turtles, dragonflies…).

Registration starts at 8 am; the launch is at 10 am.
