FIBArk Hooligan Race – $35

Salida Whitewater Park
Register: On-line or at the FIBArk Boathouse
Calling this a whitewater paddling event may be generous, but saying it is one of the most fun events of FIBArk would be right on. The Hooligan Race is open to anything that floats that’s not a boat. Hooligans dress up in costume and the winner, in 2nd place, is usually not just the fastest but often one of the few left standing, or, floating. This spectacle of “controlled chaos” is a local tradition that always produces a huge turnout on Saturday evening. Don’t miss it!
The rules of the Hooligan are few and far between, but this year we need to mention a few more. No Hazardous Materials. Batteries, generators, fuel of any type, and we do not want furniture, mattresses, or other items that can become a river hazard if lost. We need to be aware of what we put in the river and be able to remove it after.
