Fall Finale will be a festival to remember! Watch or participate in the BYOB (build your own boat) Competition, sample cider and relax on the lawn. It's a great way to close out summer!

By Kelsey Van
Whether you ever dreamed of building your own boat and floating it down some rapids or you just want to watch a bunch of hooligans try, this is your chance! The USNWC is throwing a two day fest filled with fun, games and entertainment, including the ridiculously fun Build Your Own Boat Competition. The BYOB Competition and Race judging will be based on both creativity and seaworthy-ness. So yes, your Banana Boat that sinks might still secure a prize! Eat, drink, sink a boat and have a grand ol' time at the Fall Finale!

"Wrap up another great USNWC summer and River Jam Concert Series with us at Fall Finale. This year's festival features Cider Sampling and the always entertaining and exciting BYOB (Build Your Own Boat) Competition, where participants create their own river-worthy vessels and put them to the test with a trip down the whitewater competition channel. Take part in the Dirty Dozen Obstacle Adventure Race through the USNWC trail system, or a yoga practice under the trees, before enjoying the sights and sounds of one of our final musical performances of the year.
