It’s time to start floating around ideas for the 4th Annual Rock River Anything That Floats Race, Sunday, August 18th. The annual raft race, which first began in 1976, has attracted tens of thousands of people over the years as contestants, volunteers and spectators. In one year alone more than 80,000 people lined the Rock River to cheer on the inventive racers. After a brief hiatus, the race returned in 2016 and has become a novel tradition for new generations of Rockfordians to love and experience. Last year’s race had 40 raft entries and drew a crowd of approximately 20,000 spectators!
