The River Race Party is from Noon-4 p.m. and with live music by Cahoots and the Church Marching Band opening at noon. There will be beer & wine, food trucks, kids activities, a costume contest among racers, and a Water Conservation Fair.
We’re focusing on water conservation because we are in a drought and we all need to conserve water to protect the River! The Sonoma County Water Agency and others will be giving away free items to help you conserve water at home.There will be native plants for sale and examples of rain water harvesting and you can have your questions answered on how to convert your lawn to drought tolerant native plants.Visit Event Website >>
