The Floatila, a "community float" down the Tennessee River, is set for May 18. The family-friendly event is presented by Outdoor Adventures Rafting and green|spaces.
The Floatila is more than a raft race. It's an "inner tube, raft, kayak, make-your-own-vessel, borrow your buddies canoe" kind of afternoon on the river. It will begin at the Rivermont Park boat ramp and participants will float down the Tennessee River for several hours and then celebrate with music, food and beverages at the 2nd Annual Beer Over Dirt event in Renaissance Park.
Eight-person rafts are available to reserve.
