Show Off Your Craftsmanship at the Annual Raft the River Rio

Home built rafts created from recycled materials and decorated canoes/kayaks, float down the Rio Grande from the Picacho Street Bridge, La Llorona Park to the Calle del Norte Bridge in Mesilla. The float launch starts at 10:00 AM. This year there are cash prizes for the best original design using recycled materials and for the best decorated canoe/kayak. View the start of the float from the Picacho Street Bridge, La Llorona Park and join the rafters at the finish line at the Calle Del Norte Bridge in Mesilla.

There is a $5.00 charge for each additional crew member above the original crew of two. Rafts and canoes/kayaks can be registered the day of the float at La Llorona Park for $30.00 for two sailors and $5.00 for each additional crew member. All crew members must have and wear a life jacket.
