On June 24, Mills River Partnership joined the Transylvania French Broad Stewards, the Town of Rosman, and Headwaters Outfitters (as well as many more great organizations!) to participate in the 2017 Upper French Broad Riverfest in Rosman, NC.
This is a free, family fun event with tubing, local bands, food trucks, vendors, and lots of activities for all ages. Did we mention the 20-mile relay race with gear prizes?!
At the event, down by the river, we educated kids (and adults) on the importance of water quality with a cool Enviroscape model (Thanks, River Link!) that demonstrates land use. We also signed some people up for our newsletter and shared a few freebies with those that stopped by.
In addition, we were able to see the paddlers set off early that morning for the 20 mile relay and watch the tubers (not the vegetable; no pun intended) enjoy their leisurely river floats throughout the day.
Thankfully, we got to enjoy some local eats and Oscar Blues Brewery's delicious Root Beer (Thanks, Transylvania French Broad Stewards!)
... And since then, we have enjoyed the memories documented by Transylvania Bounty.
Thank you for a wonderful event, and we hope to see you all next year! ❤️
