“Spending time on the river is good for the soul and so is great reggae music. We feel there is no better way to connect to the river than to have people in it. Mix in camping, food trucks, cold beverages, beautiful property and you have the recipe for an amazing festival,” said Tom Helbig, Tomfoolery Outdoors.

The event is filled with riverfront shenanigans beyond great music including rope swing, slip ‘n slide, slackline park, kayak tug of war, rasta paddle and food trucks. Food trucks include Shakery Juice Bar and Dayton Urban BBQ.
