Move over kayaks and canoes because a Summer Float Party is coming through!
The first-ever float party on the Chicago River is set for this Sunday, August 14th. Hosted by the Friends of the Chicago River, the event will invite 500 people to take to the water on the North Branch of the Chicago River in floats and flow downstream from the boat launch at west River Park to Clark Park. Floaters can hit the river anytime between 12:30 PM and 2 PM. The event lasts until 5 PM.
THE Float Party of the Summer is happening in 5 DAYS. Join us on the Chicago River! Don a t-shirt, shorts and footwear you don’t mind getting wet.
